Common Gallinule Images and Information:

Gallinula galeata

  • Common Gallinules are dark to black chicken-like marshbirds with white flank stripes, red bills with a yellow tip, white stripe in the undertails and long green, yellow and orange legs with long toes.
  • Common Gallinules are year round residents in the southern most part of their range, in other locations in North America they are migratory.
  • Their preferred habitats include freshwater marshes, ponds, reservoirs, lakes,  open water and at times, flooded grasslands.
  • Common Gallinules feed on small invertebrates, freshwater plants and seeds.
  • Common Gallinules lay 2 to 13 eggs which hatch in 18 to 21 days. Both sexes incubate and they are monogamous.
  • Common Gallinules are also called Common Moorhens and Florida Gallinules. A group of Common Gallinules is known as a “plump” of moorhens.
  • Common Gallinules can live up to 10 years.
