American Coot

Can February march?

No, but April may.

Interesting Fact: The American coot is a highly gregarious species, particularly in the winter, when its flocks can number in the thousands.[20] When swimming on the water surface, American coots exhibit a variety of interesting collective formations, including single-file lines, high density synchronized swimming and rotational dynamics, broad arcing formations, and sequential take-off dynamics.

  1. I spent a summer studying coots in BC. They engage in another interesting behaviour – nest parasitism (laying their eggs in other coots’ nests) … crazy coots.
