When I saw this Moor Hen I remembered the darker fall look that my Heron photographs portrayed. So I took the shot of this small hen near the same spot.
A half mile stretch of marsh looks like this so I hoped they might be similar.
The Gallinule, or Moor Hen, is the pigeon of the marshlands. Not that I don’t like them, but they are everywhere and give off a loud warning.
They do provide another service. Everything out here eats them. It’s what’s for dinner.
