Coot [Fulica atra]

Beautiful day, yes, it really was. But, it was windy, cold, cold, cold.

  3. Wow, I never saw a bird like this. What is it? A duck? It surely is very impressive and beautiful, great color combination, with the black plumage, white beak and forehead and the small red eyes! I am going to check it out at Wikipedia now!
    Glad you had a good day, in spite the cold wind. :-)

  8. On the other side of the world, it is hot, hot, hot. And windy.
    Love your coot though. Photographic proof that 'red-eye' isn't a bad thing.

    1. Yes, I do like the wind instead of rain, but I love without either, just the sun Adra.

  15. Coots are difficult, very black very white. When the light is right it works out well. Your coots are beautiful.
