Rallidae (Rails, Crakes & Coots)

Wikipedia Abstract

The rails, or Rallidae, are a large cosmopolitan family of small to medium-sized birds. The family exhibits considerable diversity and the family also includes the crakes, coots, and gallinules. Many species are associated with wetlands, although the family is found in every terrestrial habitat except dry deserts, polar regions and alpine areas above the snow line. Members of the Rallidae are found on every continent except Antarctica. There are numerous island species.
