Australasian Swamphen

Australasian Swamphen - Porphyrio melanotus 


Wilson Reserve, Ivanhoe:  2017:  January.


This species was known as the Purple Swamphen, but is now known as the Australasian Swamphen.  I sometimes see them closer to home, but always in the distance, and they usually move into cover quickly.
