OK, then what is this?

The original post is a plain old American Coot, also sometimes called a Mudhen. This one is a Common Gallinule also commonly called a Moorhen. The Purple Gallinule is very similar to the Moorhen except primarily for its colouring, being a rich Purple with a bright blue headplate. The Common Gallinules headplate is the same colour as the rest of its beak.
I have many pics of Purple Gallinules but none accessible at this time to post (am at church at the moment)

Very nice, Ron

A pleasure hearing from you gregory. Love to see your postings of those beauties of the Everglades. One of my favourite birding areas are in your neck of the woods. Will not get down this year, hopefully in 2020. Costs are a bit much nowadays, especially when something (rooms etc) that costs you $100 costs me $140. So keep posting those beauties to give me the incentive to head south later.

Good work, Ron!

Thanks Mike for looking in. But in reality doing this is never considered work, it's always a pleasure trip especially if you have a good poser like this one.

Beautiful shot Ron. I love the juveniles! Gary

Thanks Gary for the kind comment. This year we saw more juvies then adults at the refuges. Most the adults were seen at the local land fills.

Still just a youngster but is already a magnificent bird. Taken this past summer at the Shiawassee NWR just outside Saginaw MI.

Looks like my kind of store

May be your kind of store, but afraid not mine. Own a few, but haven't pulled a trigger in over 50 years, my run-in with a wedding dress happened (happily) 46 years ago, and lastly am gluten intolerate (can't even take a sip of any suds any more made with grain 😢😢). Anyhows, thanks fer stopping in and commenting.
