Over the last few days, in addition to the Purple Gallinule turned over to the 
rehabber here in TN, there have been 3 seperate sightings of Purple Gallinule 
in KY. The last one, today, was on a farm pond.
While 25+ years ago Purple Gallinule was somewhat regular in TN, at Reelfoot 
Lake anyway, they have been decidedly rare since then. Looks like scanning any 
water with some cover over the next few days might turn up a goodie! It's funny 
that there hasn't been a similar rash of Common Moorhen sightings, the more 
expected species.
Good Birding!!
