#WednesdayWashback After Hurricane Sandy I found what I assumed was simply the talon of a baby North American Fire-breathing Dragon washed up on the beach. Well after posting this a few years ago, my imagination got the best of me when my more intelligent post watchers put it to my attention that this is the foot of the "Stanky Foot Loon" better know as the Mud Hen or American Coot. Before swiping to see the real owner of this foot looks like, try imagining this fearsome creature in your minds eye then compare it to reality. #americancoot #usa #america

Locked up all the kids to help with a coot transport. This guy looks like he'll just need some rehab and then he could be released. #animalrescue #americancoot

Fishermen commercial nets trapped this juvenile #americancoot #Fulicaamericana. Good thing for it that our #spinnerbait got tangled 'cause we hadn't noticed it! #catchandrelease #bassfishing

The American coot has gigantic feet with lobed toes, which enable it to swim like a duck and walk on soft mud without sinking. It also uses its feet to patter across the water to help get its heavy body airborne, 4/3/2017. #americancoot #ftsupplylake #northwestoklahoma

#your_best_birds #reddingca #northerncalifornia #wildlifephotos #americancoot #dragonfly #clovercreek So fun to capture a coot having breakfast this morning.

I spent quite a while watching this young American Coot frolic and catch some dinner in the lakeside marsh alongside it's siblings and Mama at the Living Waters Boardwalk on Astotin Lake in Elk Island Park.

If you haven't been out to Elk Island National Park, I highly recommend it! It's a quick drive out of the city. (We've already been out multiple times this year and have had different experiences each time - there is so much to do and so much nature to see!)

Some more of our current animals we have in care. An orphaned Yellow warbler that has been doing wonderfully, a VERY young orphaned American Coot that is growing day by day, a rather grumpy Merlin on cage rest and a couple of sleepy orphaned Bluejays. The finders realized parents were missing and found the bigger sibling in time but the smaller was found a day later and did not survive :(. #livingskywildliferehab #wildliferehabilitation #wildliferescue #yellowwarbler #americancoot #merlinfalcon #bluejay

A second batch of baby American Coots has arrived. Although Coots are plain as adults, the babies are my favourites.
