Interesting Fact: A slow and meticulous forager, the American Coot plucks at plants while walking, swimming, dabbling with its head just underwater, or in full dives. In flight coots are clumsy and labored (though less so than Common Moorhens). To get airborne, coots typically have to beat their wings while running across the water for many yards.

I love this photo and your description. When I first saw a coot out of water I was shocked by the size of their feet and how they looked. It is amazing to see how they navigate through water with those big chicken feet. What is even more amazing to watch is the chicks when they’re new to the world.
They are quite amazing birds. Thank you very much, I am really glad to see that you enjoyed my work. I appreciate you stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us. Thank you again and Happy Blogging! 🙂
Thanks for the funny, and a nice photo too.
