Whoops – American Coot on Thin Ice



Some images are simply too funny not to share. Even with those huge feet this American Coot (Fulica americana) couldn’t stay in top of the ice at a pond near where I live in Salt Lake County, Utah.

Any wonderful captions come to mind?

Her recent move to the Salt Lake area of Utah was a great opportunity to continue observing their behavior and photographing them. With so many birds species there easily accessible it wasn’t long before she was hooked. By learning more about each species, she can anticipate their behaviour and create opportunities to obtain ever better images of those species.
