The white breasted waterhen (Amaurornis phoenicurus)
is water bird in the rail and crake family. Adults have a white breast, black or dark grey underparts and the belly is cinnamon in colour. They too have long toes, a short tail and yellow legs and beak. Immatures are black all over, or grey, like all rails.

Many rails are very secretive, but White-breasted Waterhens are often seen out in the open.
They can be found in Singapore Botanic Gardens. I only saw them there before. Everytime I go there, I would surely see it.
