Common Gallinule

Common Gallinule Gallinula galeata
Grass Lake, Cambridge, ON

    The Common Gallinule is an infrequent visitor to our area and it was a great pleasure to see this individual at Grass Lake this afternoon. Formerly considered conspecific with the Eurasian Common Moorhen it has been resplit and is now accorded full species status.
