Photo of the Day: Common Moorhen

Common Moorhen, Shark Valley, FL. (Click for a larger image)

I went back to Shark Valley this morning to see if there was anything different compared to Saturday.  Indeed, there was.  This is a common moorhen; not quite as spectacular as the purple gallinule, but impressive nonetheless. It’s been a great trip and I’m heading back to Colorado in the morning.  Six more weeks of winter await.
