On my bike ride this morning I stopped at one of the little lakes for some photos of these birds. There were the usual Canadian Geese and common Pigeons of course, but what the heck are these smaller blackish birds? A duck? They have funny feet and swim low in the water and make an odd sound, not quite the standard duck call you’re used to. Does anyone know what this unique bird is?

They are American Coots as suggested. Catch the sunlight just right and you’ll light up their beautiful red eyes! 🙂
I’m useless with birds, John (well, that sort, anyway) – but are they coots?
I just dunno, better ask the Duck. Duckduckgo. 😎 an odd bird. I enjoyed your latest post today, always a fascinating read my friend!
