Gallinula chloropus (common moorhen) (also known as the waterhen and as the swamp chicken) is a bird species in the family Rallidae. It is distributed across many parts of the Old World.

The common moorhen lives around well-vegetated marshes, ponds, canals and other wetlands. The species is not found in the polar regions or many tropical rainforests. Elsewhere it is likely the most common rail species, except for the Eurasian coot in some regions.

The closely related common gallinule of the New World has been recognized as a separate species by most authorities, starting with the American Ornithologists' Union and the International Ornithological Committee in 2011.


Best Regards.

Thank you very much for your kind words! I don't use fill flash since 2011 actually. I'm just chasing the best light moment. Best!

Ah, I misinterpreted the eye shine; even more impressive that this was all natural lighting!
