Bird Photos / American Coot

Last Update: 4/3/2014

I saw these first coots in the Susquehanna River near the Havre de Grace Lock House museum, by the Route 40 bridge, on December 10th, 2005. There were 8 of them total. Their light colored bill was very distinctive.

This next coot was standing near some ring billed gulls in the same general place as the ones above. This particular photo was taken on February 26th, 2006. The coots were here pretty much every time I came by.
