American Coot

Here is a bird that birders might have trouble identifying. Many field guides do not show this junvenal plumage of the American Coot. (Fledglings are black, with orange heads.} In the fall season, birds will molt into the black, basic plumage of adult birds. John Holden and I found this bird, one of several, at the 180th Street Marsh in Dakota County, Minnesota.
