Moorhen Feeding Young Chick
Seeing this moorhen feeding her single chick brought to mind the high mortality rates for these birds. A clutch is usually up to a dozen or so, but this appeared to be the only survivor.
Their huge legs and feet develop very fast so that they can get out of the nest quickly, but it takes a lot longer for the wings to develop enough for flight. For that reason, they tend to stay in cover along the water's edge, so I was fortunate to get this shot of the adult as he/she fed the chick.
