A Purple Swamphen shot against the sun while eating Spikerush leftovers.

This bird decimated an area of Spikerush about 5 feet by 5 feet several days ago. Today it was back picking over the leftovers.

Seeing this invasive species bird in action, I can see why some folks would like to "eradicate" it. Still I don't see the harm in having the few that are here.
