American Coots

photograph of American Coots in the water

The American Coot is a rather funny looking bird.  They break the old rule that says “if it looks like a duck and sounds like a duck, it must be a duck”.  They are actually more closely related to rails and cranes.  When you get a good look at their feet, which are not webbed, you realize they must not be ducks.
