A resident of wetlands across much of Australia, the Purple Swamphen is classic for its startlingly rich deep colours. This one had a real beef with that root. It would repeatedly wrench at the root, displaying great force, although it never did take its prize. I was bitten by one of these while doing my volunteer stint at Kanyana and can attest to the power of that beak. It drew blood very quickly.
