The Purple Gallinule just made another brief appearance in the same location at 7:40pm as described on Ontbirds by Jeremy Bensette. See directions below.

Location: John R Park Homestead can be found by searching Google Maps, and is on County Rd 50 between Kingsville and Harrow in Essex County. If you park in the gravel parking lot up against a flower garden, walk to County Rd 50 and turn right. There is a bridge over the road, and the bird is less than 100m south of Rd 50<x-apple-data-detectors://1> (toward the lake). Viewing is difficult and will require patience. The bird was resting for a while out of sight, then came back into view and foraged before flying across the creek, where it was still viewable but tricky. Hopefully that makes enough sense! The approximate GPS coordinate of the bird is (41.9966, -82.8485), which is in the middle of a small marsh. Do not plan to walk to this exact coordinate - it is where the bird last was and a good direction to look from the road.
