American Purple Gallinule in Lisbon

Another incredible finding for Western Paleartic and 1st record for mainland Portugal, an American Purple Gallinule Porphyrio martinica was photographed yesterday 07/11/2013 with a cellphone at Parque Monsanto- Lisbon by Nuno Ramos.
Today the 1st winter bird was still at the place and very confident, feeding in the open, and making the joy of many.
Video here and here.
