Common Gallinule - Vischer Ferry

I found a Common Gallinule this morning at Vischer Ferry Preserve in the "back pond", the one along the west side of the main path that leads from the Whipple Bridge to the river. It was visible from the main gravel path, calling occasionally.   I've attached 2 pics of the Gallinule, plus a hen Common Merganser I saw in the River at the Vischer Ferry Power Plant and a mother Wood Duck with young in tow along the towpath west of the Whipple Bridge.
