Resident Moorhen

Moorhen.... Gallinula chloropus
Head on a little strange.


  1. Thanks Professor.

    He is in the eyes of the beholder...I think they are kinda strange...but I like 'em.

  2. This is an unusual bird to me. We have nothing like this over here that I am aware of and I live in the Midwest, in Ohio, and birds that come into my backyard are those I photograph. Anyway. It is a nice shot.

    Thank you very much for visiting My Birds Blog and for the comment you left me there about my Coopers Hawk photograph. My Birds Blog

  3. Great to have a resident one. I have one visit occasionally. Always fascinated by the way they move.

  4. Hi Abe.

    The Moorhen is a very common bird seen on most ponds, pools and rivers over here in the UK.

    Thanks for your is nice to hear from over the *pond* .

  5. Hi John.

    I find they are very quick to scarper once they know you are there. When they do..they are rather comical breaking out into the frantic dash for safety.
