Those who have followed 10,000 Birds for awhile might remember my post about what is perhaps the bird that I most want to see, Atlantisia rogersii, otherwise known as the Inaccessible Island Rail.

Andrew Evans, writing on his blog, Digital Nomad, has told the tale of his encounter with that very bird. Darn that Andrew Evans – I never got an invitation!
