LouAnn Partington, a local wildlife rehabilitator and member of the  
Highland Rim Chapter of TOS, is currently caring for a Purple  
Gallinule, found yesterday (5/5) off Hwy 50 in Franklin County, near  
Tims Ford Lake.

She said it does not appear to have any broken bones but is very  
underweight and was unable to stand or fly when she received it.   
However, it did make some weight gain overnight.

She sent me a picture, if anyone would like to see it.
