Eurasian Coot (Fulica atra)

I used to think these were moor hens but know different these days. I love that my love for nature photography has increased my knowledge, or my hunger for learning, so much more these days. I often get family and friends now asking me what bird is that when we see or hear one when out and about.

However, I believe I can be forgiven for thinking they’re moorhens. They are similar to the dusky moorhen which has yellow and orange on its head instead.
