Observation details

Bird noticed on afternoon of November 5 as a roadkill beside sidewalk by Charlene Daniels and family. Charlene noticed it still there on the 6th and emailed R Pye. who let me know about the body I contacted Charlene and picked up the body on sunday. The specimeni s being transported to ROM this week. Apparently 2nd record for Durham region Thanks to Glenn Coady for providing me with the following information. The 1st purple gallinule for Durham region was in April 8 1892 so it has been awhile. This is also only the 6th record for the GTA.
