We Home Stagers can’t hold a candle to what Mother Nature can do when it comes to Before and After pictures. The Purple Gallinule is one of my favorite birds at Green Cay Wetlands in Boynton Beach. That cute fuzzy little “peep” on the left is a baby Purple Gallinule. (Look at the feet!) Now look at the gorgeous adult Purple Gallinule on the right.
Eat your greens children so you can grow up and look like this!
The Gallinule is not much of a flyer but with those feet, you should see them climb to the end of a stalk of their favorite food- the fire flag plant- and gingerly balance all the way to the end to retrieve the purple flower. Both Mom and Dad care for the nest and there is a “changing of the guard” when they’re sitting on the eggs.
