Purple Gallinule, Purple Flowers

Purple Gallinules love to eat the purple flowers of Fireflag.  They use their long toes to climb into the tops of the plant and bend the flower heads over. The school children that visit always tell me that since they eat purple flowers, of course they have purple feathers. If you're lucky, you may spot a Purple Gallinule or two on Green Cay's mile trail.
