Face to Face with a Swamp Hen and friend
Face to Face with a Swamp Hen and Friend. I captured this shot in Wakodahatchee on Sunday as the birds were about to be shaded by the boardwalk as the sun set. These birds were fairly easy to capture a shot they seem to like to watch their surroundings with both eyes. Their bright purple and blue colors are spectacular in the sun which creates a .
Some don't like that these birds are now living in our wetlands since they aren't a native species; I've been persistently watching them whenever I get the chance and they seem to need a totally different food source than locals.
Enjoy the pretty purple birds.
