American Coot

I think of them the Rodney Dangerfield of waterfowl. They get no respect.
They walk along the ground in formation as other waterfowl fly.


  1. We saw a flock of these at a Wildlife Sanctuary a few weeks ago...they were all near the water...flying out or landing. We had a great time watching them - managed to catch a few photos of them but yours are definitely more detailed! Great photos!

  2. Too funny! I love the one where they are retreating! Have a great weekend John.

  3. So many of them too, all moving in unison, interesting!

  4. Looks like they have everything to themselves!
    Have a good Easter John! ;-)

  5. Wonderful to see them John..
    I bet it would make a lovely little video clip.

  6. They walk like an army in formation. All the way together.
