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.
