Purple Gallinule - Adult in Florida

At Green Cay we were fortunate to see quite a few Purple Gallinule.  Loved watching this bird fly from stem to stem looking for the pretty purple flowers to eat.

Holly can you tell me the name of the flower

At Wako we were lucky to see the purple gallinule bathing right beside the boardwalk.  It was in full sun.

A few shots.  Please note the white above top of head is a pale blue.  Sun overexposed it.

Look at the eye







Such a great bird
