GRAY-HEADED SWAMPHEN #1
Gray-headed swamphen. Palm Beach County, Florida. This beautiful bird (formerly called the purple swamphen) was introduced into North America when the widespread destruction caused by Hurricane Andrew in 1992 resulted in their accidental release. They escaped from bird keepers in the Pembroke Pines area, and also from the Miami Metro Zoo around the same time. State wildlife biologists attempted to eradicate the birds, which can cause serious habitat disruption by feeding on native plants; but they have multiplied and can now be found in many areas of southern Florida.
