    A bit of a rarity here in NS at the edge of its range, but a reasonably reliable early winter visitor to unfrozen fresh water.

    An older photo taken during my spring break from school last April. Although we don't have a lot of water here in Arizona we do have a nice lake between Tucson on the Mexican Border - Patagonia Lake. This Coot is one of the year round residents there.

    First day after the Bay froze over. The Coots could not seem to have figured out how to deal with the new situation.

    Except during mid winter, the Coot is another very common water bird in my area. They will sometimes come pretty close to you.

    Also seen at Henderson Bird Viewing Area, Las Vegas, NV. This area is a section of the Water Reclimation Plant set aside as a bird habitat with several ponds. Great place, a bit of an oasis in desert for the birds.

    These Coots would come close to shore, and then flap their wings as they walked across the water to the sand.
