The Purple Gallinule

Hello Birders,

Our December Birding Fieldtrip will take us to the Emerald Pond, the Ruby Golf Course and to the Reef Ponds as well, where we will be searching for the beautiful Purple Gallinule which has usually arrived by now at either of these locations. We will meet at 8 am on Saturday, December 15th at Thompson's Parking lot at the Reef Golf Course.
