Purple Gallinule chickGreen Cay Wetlands is relatively quiet with a few lingering shorebirds. There is a family of Purple Gallinules with two adults keeping careful watch on four newly hatched chicks. The tiny chicks are black with pink legs and feet so enormous that they are equally as large as the rest of the body.
