2023—Living on the Lilies

The Purple Gallinule, a large, colorful year-round resident of Florida, lives primarily on lily pads. It has impossibly large feet that allow it to stride easily across a blanket of lily pads. Although its common name includes the color purple, its most dominant colors are the three primary colors, red, blue, and yellow. The bright colors make it easy to spot on the green lily pads it calls home.
