Common Gallinule

Rare sighting and lifer

Viewed 14 Times

Very excited to spot this Common Gallinule this morning at one of my local nature preserves. There were two in the location and I was amazed how loud their calls were. I saw one fly across the marsh and while I was trying to spot that one on one side, the other one casually came out of the reeds on the other side to do a little preening.

Good shot of the Gallinule. Although frequently seen in Florida more of them are appearing in Illinois. Glad you got this one!
