Funky Feet

I snapped some pictures the last time I went for a walk. This picture was nothing spectacular so I just kinda blew by it on the computer....but I was looking at my photos again and I noticed those feet.

Weirdest bird feet I've ever seen!

So the naturalist in me (I worked exactly one season in the past as a naturalist giving live animal talks and leading hikes) had to figure out what kind of bird this was. It looks like it is an American Coot. I would have thought it was just another duck if it weren't for those feet!


  1. It looks a bit like a Pukeko, which is a swamphen in New Zealand.

  2. Those are some weird feet!
