What Kind of Bird is This?

From my friend Max, on a bike trip in Pennsylvania:

"Do you know what kind of bird this is? A whole bunch of them were sitting on the fence and doing this weird thing where they sat with both wings outstretched. There were so many of them, and they were so large and totally unperturbed by humans. I was quite curious."


What do you think? 

I'll post our amateur bird detective conclusions tomorrow!

It looks like a Tasmanian Nativehen. Could they fly or were they grounded?

They could fly! You can't find those in Pennsylvania!
