Spot these crazy coots in a wetland near you. The American coot’s white bill and dark feathers make it easy to ID. The piercing red eyes of an adult signal it’s ready to find a mate. Nicknamed the “marsh hen,” the coot bobs its head when it walks or swims. Coots don’t have webbed feet like a duck. Their oversized feet have side flaps to help them swim. They’re clumsy fliers and make long running water takeoffs.
