I can’t get enough of the Purple Gallinule. They look amazing, their call is distinctive and sort of humorous, and if they are far enough away they will stay out in the open for some time posing for the camera.
They love these little flower buds. There are two Purple Gallinules at the place I frequent that have 5 or 6 chicks and it is fun to watch them bend the stalks over so the little ones can get a chance to grab at the buds. And how can you not love those feet.
