An Okinawa Rail crossing the road.
I can almost remember when I first heard about the "new" charismatic rail that had been discovered on an island called Okinawa in the south Japanese archipelago. I have been fantasizing about that bird ever since and 36 years later I was on site to see it. Fantastic!
