Feathers on Friday: What a red nose you have!

This Common Gallinule seen at our local wildlife reserve is quite conspicuous with his  red nose and forehead. His exceptionally long toes enable him to walk atop floating vegetation. As you can see, he has no lobes or webbing to help in swimming, but he is nevertheless a very good swimmer.

I just popped into my bathroom a few minutes ago, and looking out of the window, I counted nine Iguanas, two Squirrels, two Blue Jays, a Red-bellied Woodpecker and a Red Cardinal. No ‘Partridge In A Pear Tree’, though. 🙂

Have a great weekend.
