La Poule d'eau australienne ou Gallinule sombre

Gallinula tenebrosa
Gruiformes Rallidae

 En avril dernier, c'était le début de l'automne en Australie, les oiseaux élevaient leurs dernières nichées dans les jardins botaniques de Mackay dans le Queensland. Ces oiseaux d'eau sont plus petits et plus sombres que leurs cousins d'Europe.

In Australia at the beginning of the fall mid April, The Dusky moorhens were busy with their last brood in Mackay's Botanic Gardens. These water birds are smaller and darker than their European counterparts:

  2. It goes without saying, Noushka, that your images are, as usual, superb! What really surprised me, however, is that the Moorhen that we know and love is so widespread. I'd never have guessed that the identical species lives in Australia. - and in America too!

    Best wishes - - - - Richard

    1. Richard they are also pretty much all over Africa except in a few places as well. Diane

    2. Hey Richard...the North American species was split some time ago. It is called Common Gallinule, Gallinula galeata here. And, with great respect to Noushka, I do not believe that the bird shown here is Common Moorhen, Gallinula chloropus. I am pretty sure it is Dusky Moorhen, Gallinula tenebrosa. Common Moorhen is not found in Australia.

  11. Hi Noushka,
    The moorhen is a common bird with us, althought not always easy to photograph. Most of the times they are pretty shy. Quite a challenge is to make pics of the young ones. Beautifel pictures: I don't expect something else of you :-)
    Greetings, Kees

  15. Siempre he querido visitar Australia, desde que era niño, y espero poder hacerlo dentro de unos años, porque es muy grande y está muy lejos, así que necesitaré tiempo que ahora no tengo. Estas aves sorprenden por ese rojo tan intenso.

  16. Wonderful images, Noushka, especially the ones with the water lilies. But see the comment above. I believe the species is misidentified.
