Dusky moorhen chick

Australian dusky moorhen chick

Chick of Australian dusky moorhen, Gallinula tenebrosa, IMG 3074 -  In this modern era, the natural habitat of the dusky moorhen seems to be any source of water that’s close to human habitation, for it’s become a permanent resident in many urban parks where there are ornamental lakes in which it can contentedly dabble about and feed. This young bird was photographed in the botanic gardens in the Queensland city of Bundaberg.
