My Favorite Images / American Coot

 

American Coot walking on the banks of the canals in Lake Mattamuskeet Wildlife Refuge in eastern North Carolina. Often mistaken for a duck, the American Coot is a common waterbird. Its all black body and white chicken-like beak distinguish this swimming rail from the real ducks.
