American common gallinule couple, video

This video from the USA says about itself:

25 November 2016

A pair of Common Moorhens (aka Common Gallinule) enjoy a nice bath and a preening session in a freshwater marsh. Also known as “swamp chickens” these birds are unique for their huge non-webbed feet that allow them to walk easily on top of aquatic vegetation. A close relative of the [American] Purple Gallinule.
