@nicolettadaskalakis Pretty cool!

@gallpix @nicolettadaskalakis thanks Nicoletta🙏7!

This creepy peek inside a taxidermied specimen comes courtesy of the fabulous and talented @alisondouglastaxidermy (not to be confused with the likewise fabulous and talented @allis Markham, who did so much of the taxidermy for our transformed exhibit halls). If you dig taxidermy, you’ll want to follow them both! To learn more about how birds are prepared for museum collections, stay tuned to our blog at sbnature.org/blog for a post coming up later in October about how we make “study skins” that are a different kind of taxidermy from posed mounts like this one. #taxidermy #creepy #october #behindthescenes #bird #moorhen #purpleswamphen #preservation

Latham’s Snipe at Jerrabomberra Wetlands- at about 30 cm long and only 200g these little guys fly to south-eastern Australia from Hokkaido in Japan every year around August/ September and return in March. Each leg of this trip is 8,000 km so it’s pretty special to see them here at our local Wetlands in Canberra...

Grey headed Purple Swamphen

The male has an elaborate courtship display, holding water weeds in his bill and bowing to the female with loud chuckles.

The Romans kept purple swamphens as decorative birds at large villas and expensive houses. 
They were regarded as noble birds and were among the few birds that Romans did not eat. 
A purple swamphen is depicted at the bottom of the famous garden fresco from Pompeii.

@johnreveszphotography @leannejstanyard A very big thank you Leanne. You know, you do what you do and I used to worry what others thought. I still do now, worry about what others think, that is, but what choice is there? You do what you do. And others, well, thats always fickle. But you know that yourself. But it always nice to hear a compliment. Thank you.

@suhailkhanphotography @nikolaas.aelbrecht Thank you so much. Greatly appreciate your feedback. Shall visit your gallery

It was so cute to watch the patience and dedication to teach the little ones these purple swamphens had🤗
and the little ones were so keen to learn and trying to keep a very close eye in what the adult was doing.
There were 3 chicks and 2 adults. Each adult was being followed closely by one chick and the bigger of the 3 bubbas was sort of trying on its own in between them and constantly calling to let them know where he was. He would join each of the adults whenever they found a juicy prey to share with him. So cute

This juvenile purple swamphen (Porphyrio porphyrio) was hanging out with its parents at the @hunterwetlands today. This species is a large rail, commonly seen through their range in north and east Australia. Inhabiting freshwater bodies such as swamps, streams and marshes, they forage for reed shoots, but will also consume insects, frogs and eggs of other species. #hunterwetlands #hunterbirds #birdnerd #aves #purpleswamphen #wildlife #wildlifephotography #nikonp900 #wetlands #bestbirds #eye_spy_birds #rail #birdsofaustralia #ecotourismaustralia #juvenile #australiannatives #wildlife #native #featheredperfection #feathers #bestbirdsofinstagram #bestbirdsofig #best_birds_of_ig

@mcleanhellen Of course you can, now go get your mates to 😂 xx

@misspeacheycelia Cool!

The Purple Gallinule (Galinha Sultana in Portuguese) was one of the rarest birds in Portugal and almost became extinct in the 1980s when it was limited to a small number on the Ria Formosa. Today it not only occurs throughout the Algarve but also in certain wetlandsof the Alentejo and the Baixo Mondego, thanks to nature reserves being established and reintroduction projects. They are certainly thriving in the Parque Ambiental near us! Here's two of the many beauties we saw this summer...

Some say pukeko, some say purple swamp hen - either way, I love this graceful and gangly bird. 
Cold, windy and snowy day today - a good day for games and movies (and some drawing). #nzbird #pukeko #birdsofnz #purpleswamphen #ipadpro #ipadproart #surfacepatterndesign #ipadillustration

@raymondmcgr ...and others say blue chickens.

@bluestarfishdesigns They are one of my favourites too. I call them the purple swamp chicken.

Purple swamphens! Feel very grateful  that we can see beautiful birds like this at door steps. For 3 weeks in China, I didn’t see any other animals except humans and their pets. .
