The morning weather has been fantastic lately, although yesterday morning was cold (in the 50s). I got this just as the sun was making its way over the horizon and giving everything that golden morning glow. The large numbers of Purple Gallinules that I saw this summer has diminished somewhat. I don’t know if they go somewhere or the numbers are being reduced by predators. The adults I see now are probably the chicks that I watched scurrying around in early summer and they look like they have been well fed.
