Best Feet Ever by In-the-picture Best Feet Ever by In-the-picture
Surprisingly hard to get a good shot of this shy bird... been after a foot shot for ages so funky...
Its feet have distinctive lobed flaps of skin on the toes, which act instead of webs when swimming.

Eurasian Coot IUCN Red List Conservation status - Least Concern

Your coots are different than the coots we have... they don't have the white part on the beak

Yeah, they really do have interesting feet, with those flaps on the toes. More interesting than plain old webbed feet.

Indeed - look so funky, makes you wonder why more birds don`t have the same?
