Dusky Moorhen, Purple Swamphen, Pacific Black Duck

It was a grey skies day with a cool breeze blowing; really good to be out and enjoy a change of scenery in Sydney, at Centennial Park "the People's Park".

This moorhen definitely has interesting feet for a bird. also this pacific black duck has some lovely markings.

Those Moorhens are interesting. Their bills look like they've been dipped in red wax, then in yellow.

Those are very cool photos Carole! I enjoyed all the detail on the birds, and I loved your explanation on my donkey's attitude, I guess we can all have a bad day at times.
