I have had another surprise visitor to the garden this week. A young Moorhen, he was possibly here last week, but I first saw him properly on Monday, down by the pond. Since then he appears to have moved into residence, regularly coming up close to the house and the feeders.

Moorhen...like our "Coots?" Does the beak change color as they grow up?

@houser934 Yes they are related to Coots. This a young one from early this year. Its beak will change colour, red, yellow and white as it grows into maturity.
