Eurasian coot

A bird that readily adapts to wetland recreational areas where it can get some easy pickings.  The white beak and forehead shield are distinctive identifying characteristics.  A good swimmer, it has lobed toes rather than the webbed feet common to ducks and other waterfowl.  It swims strongly, with a head-bobbing action, and readily emerges to walk about, foraging on land.  Often seen in spectacular runs across calm water surfaces.
