Common Gallinule - juvenile

Gallinula galeata

Description:

Juveniles lack the red bills that the adults have. They can be easily separated from coots by the white line located along the bottom of the wings while closed.

Habitat:

Wetland

Notes:

I love how you can see the bird's reflection in the water.
