Bottoms Up!

Who knew that what I considered to be a rather plain bird could look so pretty with its coverts flashing, the ruff on its bback standing out and the wings arched in such an exquisite manner? To be honest, I often do not get too excited about the American Coots because I see so many of them, not unlike my reaction to the plentiful Mallard ducks. I am wrong in my attitude because they have so many interesting behaviours that they are definitely worth studying more deeply.
