Coot: Birds of Britain

Coots spend most of their lives in water. They even build their nests floating in shallow water or resting on a half-submerged branch, hidden among the lake reeds. In spite of their comical plump bodies and huge splayed feet, they are aggressive birds. Intruding birds are loudly and fiercely attacked.
