American Coots, October 4, 2017

Wild Bird Wednesday and I'd Rather B Birdin'

Pickwick, Tennessee, USA, October 2, 2017
The American Coots, Fulica americana, have returned - a sure sign cold weather is on its way!

In the southwestern part of the United States, Coots are all-year residents. Here in the southeast the Coots are migratory, going farther north to nest and raise their young before returning to us in the Autumn. Look for them feeding on aquatic plants around the edges of lakes, marshes and ponds.

Have a wonderful day!

  6. Nice to see these. We don't see them on our local lake.

  7. Cool!!! What with all the birding areas that I normally would see coots residing inaccessible, this was a special treat!!! As always, your participation at I'd Rather B Birdin' for the weekend is very much appreciated. Thanks for joining in.
