Common Moorhen - Juvenile

Among the two adult Common Moorhens I saw, there were also a couple of juveniles. The one in the image above is a bit obstructed by the reeds, but get a look at that foot! Huge toes.
Both juveniles and adults exhibited typical behavior from what I read. They swim like ducks and feed off plants growing just below the surface, sometimes walking on those same plants.
