Continuing the Bidor series.
I counted 6 of these Swamphens feeding. Couldn’t get them in one photo.
Lifer: Black-Backed Swamphen (Porphyrio indicus). Their feeding ground is the floating island of vegetation. Look at those feet! The adult Swamphens have a silvery wash on their faces compared to the juveniles.
The deep-purple blue makes the hen stand out against the green background
This is probably a juvenile. Time to get a french manicure!
|Out of the 80-90 shots taken only 6 captured the long fingertoes.|
