We have lots of these Purple Swamphens that wander around the farm and on the waterways. I’ve never gone looking for their nests or bothered to look for the babies. This baby is black and I found it, by accident, using the big camera lens. I thought the water hens looked lovely, so I decided to take a few snaps. It wasn’t until I focused the camera that I noticed the black shape. I waited until I could get them all into the photo.
