242-01-2006 Purple Gallinule

Lee Levengood found this immature bird in a retention pond along Scenic Drive. This photo shows the tan head and neck, the yellow legs, the white undertail coverts, and the irridescence on the wings. More photos of this bird can be found on Geoff Malosh’s website. This bird represents the 1st record for Lehigh County.
