An immature Purple Gallinule.

At this age, this bird looks a lot like the immature Common Moorhen in the previous slide.

But it has a softer brown look and the iridescence that characterizes adult Purple Gallinules is starting to show on its wings.

All in all, I consider this to be a very nice looking bird at this stage.
