This is a Common Gallinule, the is also a ‘purple’ species.
An odd bird that is around every swamp or marsh that has some thick cover. They feed in the open but run screaming for cover when they spot something.
Nice coloring but it’s their bill that is most interesting. Bright red, vivid yellow tip, and shines like cheap vinyl.
