    Yeah, I'm going to second the diagnosis – sure looks like a moorhen to me.

    well, you could tell me its a chicken and i'd be none the wiser. although, we do have moorhens down by our canal and they look a bit different… are there different kinds of moorhens?

    I'm right there with JP! :) I'm not sure I've ever heard of or seen one of these, but it is very cool looking.
