On the picture above you can see most of the specific features of this species, except its white undertail.

Marais de Sionnet is a fantastic nature haven located both in Meinier and Choulex. It is very close to Geneva city center and it is full of birds almost any time of the year. We are very lucky to be able to enjoy this wonderful place. Thanks to the efforts of the association Pro Natura and the local farmers, birds are safe there.

The Common Moorhen (Gallinula chloropus) is one of the many birds you can easily see there.
