dusky moorhen on floating nest

Dusky moorhen, Gallinula tenebrosa IMG 3096 - In this modern era, the natural habitat of the dusky moorhen seems to be any source of water that’s close to human habitation, for it’s become a permanent resident in many urban parks where there are ornamental lakes in which it can contentedly dabble about and feed. This bird was photographed on a nest floating in a lake in the botanic gardens in the Queensland city of Bundaberg.
