The American Coot likes to winter here on the West Coast. They can usually be spotted at my favorite birding spots like Burnaby Lake and the Reifel Bird Sanctuary. On this day I spotted a few intermingled with the Mallard and Wigeons while at Deer Lake.
One thing I find really interesting about these birds is their feet. Aren’t they the most interesting feet?
