Those are some huge feet! Great photo of him (or her) walking across the water.
What a unique bird!
OMG! I've never seen feet like those on a bird! And the name Coot...makes me giggle.Thanks for sharing.Here's MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT andMY WEBSITE
It looks like they stepped on something and it stuck to their feet! Great pictures!Here's my Snapshot
I can see why you were fascinated - those are very strange feet.
Looks fun to watch them plowing through the water in that last shot. I wonder what kind of food they eat, given that beak. Seems like it's the strong kind fit for breaking open nuts and so on.
I always enjoy seeing your birds... they are so different from what I find in the Midwestern USA.That snowy white bill is very distinctive. I'm always amazed at the way birds evolve their feather colors and wonder what advantage a white bill would have. That Coot looks much more comfortable in the water than on the land!
Oh! I love the feet!
That last photo looks so comical - makes me wonder what they look like at full speed!
What a fascinating bird! I didn't notice the feet at first because I was so taken with his beautiful black body contrasted by the pure white spot leading to the beak - it gives this bird such an interesting look. But those feet are something else! The photo where he looks like he's walking made me thinking of the Monty Python sketch "The Ministry of Silly Walks".Thank you for the photo in the water that shows what this bird's funny feet help him do!
Interesting.If birds can walk and even run on water, can man be far behind?
There are coots here in Geneva, too. I wonder why old people are called 'coots' though?
I love the name "coots" and the shot of the Coot running across the water with his ski/paddle like feet!!
These are great shots! Their feet look too big for their bodies.
Great lookin feet, and useful too. Must love what evolution comes up with :-)
Great shots!! I love watching birds swoop down to catch fish!Here's My Photo
i enjoying seeing photos of birds that I will probably never witness first hand. Thanks so much ...big feet LOL
Wow, those are the most strangest birdfeet I have ever seen! And yet, that old coot is adorable!
thanks for sharing all these unique birds with us.. the last photo is especially nice
great pictures! the Eurasian Coot almost looks like a cross between a penguin and a vulture - i've never heard of it either - but it's a really cool looking bird
That's very cool that they can run across the water. And visiting Tasmania is sweet too.
