Purple gallinule juvenile - coloring was in between young juvenile and full adult. (Common and purple are seen here each winter)Actually Purple Gallinule is accidental in California with only six
accepted records mostly from Southern California. The only previous East
Bay record is from October 1986 in Hayward.
