Coot [Fulica atra]

A bad day, it drizzled all day long, whinge whinge. Here is one from my magic bag!

  5. Blässhühner - Eurasian coots - we have many here in our parks along the small river Tauber.
    But I never took such detailed photos of that small chick!

    "This is a noisy bird with a wide repertoire of crackling, explosive, or trumpeting calls, often given at night."

  9. Your magic bag is bottomless! I like the feet on coots, moorhens and swamphens (gallinules). Your Coots seem paler than ours which is interesting.
