Lord Howe Swamphen – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Lord Howe Swamphen or White Gallinule, Porphyrio albus, was a large bird in the family Rallidae endemic to Lord Howe Island, Australia. It was similar to the Purple Swamphen, but with shorter and more robust legs and toes. Its plumage was white, sometimes with a few blue mottles, and it was probably flightless, like its other close relative the Takahe.
