American Coots

We had clouds, rain and snow all day today, but yesterday started out pretty nice and I went out to Spring Canyon again and took a few more pictures. BTW, this is my 200th post.

American Coots are very odd birds with their black feathers, white bills, red eyes, and huge feet with lobed toes.American Coot (10) American Coot (9)
