The old world Eurasian Moorhen (Gallinula chloropus) and the new world Common Gallinule (Gallinula galeata) used to be lumped under one species. They were split taxonomically a number of years ago. I would suggest that your observation is of the species that occurs in the western hemisphere, G. galeata.
