Description

A fairly common sight in spring in the marshes along Bruce Road at the William L. Finley Wildlife Refuge, American Coot chicks look little like their nearly monochrome parents. And their faint little voices can be heard most often in the reeds and cattails, trying to get the attention of the adults to bring them something to eat. Occasionally they would venture out into more open water for a brief look at their outrageous plumage.

American Coot Chicks

American Coot chicks are so ugly they're cute! And so different than the adults! Their red heads and orange collars don't last long as they grow into adults but those first few days, wow.
