One of the now over 100 American Coots that have returned to winter here.
American Coots look a lot like the Common Moorhen. However, there are distinct differences.
For example American Coots have a white beak whereas Common Moorhens have a red beak.
And their feet are dramatically different in that Common Moorhens have regular birdlike toes whereas American Coots have webbed toes that make them much better swimmers.
