Common Gallinule chicks (1 Viewer)

Last year I started seeing common gallinule at the canal across the street. They had 4 babies this year and they are as cute as anything I’ve seen. Tiny fuzzy bodies and all feet. I need to work on better pictures. I’ve just snapped on my phone as I drove by.

I found another pair at the canal across the street. They only had a couple babies.
The first pair had four, last night I saw 3 and thought they lost one, but this morning I saw 4. The parents really chase the chicks around to keep them in line.

Finally got my digiscope setup out. The chicks were ushered away before I came back.
