This bird has an attractive dark blue colour, which stands out amidst the other white water birds.
It is as big as a hen, and struts about its territory like one.
You can see loads of fabulous pictures of birds from different parts of the world at World Bird Wednesday.
Isn't he lovely -- that beautiful color really DOES stand out!ReplyDelete

Nice photo. The moorhen could pass off for a tail-less peacock!ReplyDelete
That's one of my favorite water birds!ReplyDelete
A beautiful species.ReplyDelete
Wow, a real beauty. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.ReplyDelete
The bird looks a bit like a peacock. Happy bird watching!ReplyDelete
Wow...what a lovely bird! I have not come across this one at Pobitora but I did see a jacana. I'll be on the look-out next time I visit the birding areas nearby.ReplyDelete
Beautiful bird, and new for me.ReplyDelete
