Dusky Moorhen

Dusky Moorhen (Image ID 45651)
CommentIt took me quite a while to identify this bird. I eventually came to the conclusion that it is an immature dusky moorhen. There were several individuals (all with similar plumage) foraging in this weed covered swamp. Others were sitting on mounds of vegetation beside the water, which made me think they were nesting. I decided to enter this image in the competition as it illustrates the plumage of an immature individual, and was feeding on the green weed.
