American Coot

Description:

Unfortunately, I couldn't get in close enough for a more detailed photo. There's a massive flock of these in Hermann Park, though. I managed to snap a few of them with enough info to identify them later.

Habitat:

Hermann Park

Notes:

I think this might be the first time I ever saw a coot!
