Not A Coot

So then what is it? Do you know? The Coot doesn’t have the webbed feet so I don’t know but it’s an attractive bird. I’ve been out and about today, stopped at a quarter wash to blow my tires and wheels clean. They are still new but started looking grungy, thank you power washer! Those quarter washes seem few and far between in this city and very costly. It took two dollars and twenty five cents to blast my wheels and tires clean, such a good price eh?

  1. You’ve got their name, John, from everyone above! Try for close-ups of their eyes, they are turquoise. 🙂

  2. Hi John, these are double-crested cormorants. Neotropic cormorants are only found in Texas and Mexico. Here is a helpful link of Las Vegas birds. https://www.birdandhike.com/Wildlife/Birds/00Birds.htm

  4. Great photos. They are silly birds. As pointed out, they are cormorants, that look to be Neotropic Cormorants – Phalacrocorax brasilianus. I see one or two on the Rio Grande every no and then.
