|African Purple Swamphen (Porphyria madagascariensis)|
I have captured this 'African Purple Swamphen' at Marieval Bird đŚ Sanctuary, early in the morning, just after Sunrise đ
. Very difficult to capture this species because they are very shy and run and hide in the reeds in the marshland. Early morning and GOLDEN HOUR is the perfect moment for Photographers because this time I've seen them most active to find food.
African Purple Swamphen is a species of Swamphen occurring North East Botswana đ§đź, Zimbabwe đżđź, part of Namibia đłđŚ, Madagascar đ˛đŹ, South Africa đżđŚ and cost of Mozambique đ˛đż.
It has occurred as a vagrant in Israel đŽđą in 2015.
They prefer rushes and sledges to reeds. Beautiful bird....
