Identify this ground loving bird?!

Hi there, 

Just wondering if anyone could please identify this little guy who has been very tame, keeping close to the house and swimming in our pool every day. We have lived in Southern QLD for 45 years and Ive never seen one quite like it. Your help would be much appreciated! He is a lovely little thing. 

Ta! Rod.

Rod, I'm so glad to learn that you appreciate the beauty of this bird rather than seeing it as a nuisance in you pool.

Hi it looks like a Rail they are normally very secretitive and timid however the last time I visited Heron Island

there were lots there that were so tame they would wander into the dining area amongst the guests.

I would love to have one as a regular visitor.
