[Length 15.5 in. Wingspan 24 in.]

Coots have lobed toes which help them swim, and they often swim in loose flocks with ducks. American Coots are common throughout much of Canada and the US on small lakes and park ponds, where they often beg for food along with the more typical park Mallards and Mute Swans. They can become quite tame and will readily accept food offered to them. They are often seen foraging like chickens on grassy areas near the water. This one was photographed at Lake Meade NRA, Nevada, USA. Photo taken with a Nikkor 300mm ED f4.5 lens on Kodachrome 64 film. (Date: September 1979)
