Purple Gallinule sticks around

Our Prospect Purple Gallinule now in its fourth day here, continues its residency at Lefrak Lakeside.

With the Gallinule taking great advantage of the plentiful food available there, it continues to patrol the shoreline adjacent to the Lakeside Rink complex west area. Its range stretches from the War Memorial all the way to the Lincoln Concert Grove wall during the day.It seems to favor though the middle section opposite Music Island. Our Gallinule uses the native plantings for cover on the shore, from pickle weed to grasses , yielding peeks at time for birders, and good looks other times.
