Eastern Swamp Moorhen
Coming for bread
I do like these ones so much more than the horrid ones that live on my lawn.

What have you got, Claudette? I should probably just pop along to your blog – no doubt you have mentioned your blighters.
There was a photo somewhere. We have to common evils with red eyes and horrible sqwarks (that’s not the official title but it suits them). I just call them Turbo Chooks.
Turbo chooks, I just watchec some on youtube. Not at all pretty. 🙂
you got that right, and they make an absolutely dreadful noise, and are quite aggressive (they chase the cats away).
They have them at Apex Park, West Beach, now I know what they are.
I think I’ve got the name mixed up. Either swamphen or moorhen – not both! I’ve always called them an Eastern Swamphen, and now I don’t know where I got the moorhen from at all. 🙂 I daresay I will have another post for them, since I have a million photos.
Such odd-looking creatures!
You’re not wrong, Julie!
The blue is gorgeous! Does it shift shades a bit when they move?
It is a pretty blue, but I don’t think it shifts more than you’d expect. I’ll have to take note in my oodles and oodles of photos I took.
