Australasian Swamphen

There are a lot of these birds living here with us. They are friendly, don’t cause any concern and are a delight to watch as they roam around, wandering in and out of the garden around my house. This guy seem to have something in his mouth to take away.

They’re often called Purple Swamphens, but the blue is, I think, more blue than purple.

This ones off, flashing his white behind as he goes.
