The purple gallinules are back on the alligator flag plants on the main trail at Circle B Bar Reserve. They can usually be found in October and November eating the seeds since the flag plants are in full bloom in the fall. I only saw two close to the trail the day I was there in late October. One was a juvenile since his head is not fully purple yet, probably born in early spring. They are very charismatic to watch as they climb all over the plants, often falling down.
