I was excited to photograph this beautiful Gallirallus philippensis (Buff-banded Rail) my first morning on Lord Howe Island. After a few days I realized it's probably the most common land bird on the island.

Description from Wikipedia

The Buff-banded Rail (Gallirallus philippensis) is a distinctively coloured, highly dispersive, medium-sized rail of the family Rallidae. This species comprises several subspecies found throughout much of Australasia and the south-west Pacific region, including the Philippines (where it is known as Tikling), New Guinea, Australia, New Zealand (where it is known as the Banded Rail or Moho-pereru in Māori), and numerous smaller islands, covering a range of latitudes from the tropics to the Subantarctic.
