3 Roving Reporter | "American Coot with Chick" Photograph by Sally Mitchell

THANK YOU for sharing this amazing photo, Sally! (Why what an 
interesting baby you have Ms. Coot!)

"The waterborne American Coot is one good reminder that not everything that floats is a duck. A close look at a coot—that small head, those scrawny legs—reveals a different kind of bird entirely. Their dark bodies and white faces are common sights in nearly any open water across the continent, and they often mix with ducks. But they’re closer relatives of the gangly Sandhill Crane and the nearly invisible rails than of Mallards or teal." Learn more from the Cornell Lab >>



Your picture is fantastic! Thanks for the Cornell Link, too. The information is outstanding.


Thank you for sharing such a beautiful moment in nature!


Simply precious. Thank you Sally!
