American Coot


On a walk to Rose Lake from Old Mans Cave last week we saw one lone little duck swimming all around. We had spotted this duck swimming all by itself at the far side of the lake on a previous walk. This time it was swimming near the spillway where we could get a picture of it.

The American Coot is a great little diver. It dives down and gets the mossy algae that grows along the rocks of the spillway at Rose Lake.

Dressed all in dark colors but for its white bill and the reddish brown eyes.
