I... honestly have other photos I should be posting from camping and Oro Loma... BUT what if I showed you SOME BIG FEET. Look. At. THEM.
I love the American Coots' enormous, cartoonish, lobed feet which is... pretty unique; ducks and swans have webbed feet. Coots walk with them, but also fight things using their feet and bill. Large feet are apparently good at cooling down the birds too.

But honestly, who cares. They look ludicrous. Also, bonus photo of it feeding its baby.

Taken May 22, 2018 with #SamsungGalaxyS7Edge and binoculars because sometimes you don't got your DSLR. I've always wanted a good photo of these birds' feet.

American Coots on Lake Washington
January 13, 2018

I took a mini break from surveys this morning, because I had my first ornithology lecture at 10! Weirdly, I like talking about birds much more than I like talking about cells and genetics and chemistry, imagine that. #americancoot pair at wolf lake

An American Coot in the process of gathering nest building material... she was very busy making numerous trips back and forth with various bits and pieces for her nest. #americancoot
