The Common Moorhen has long toes that makes it possible to walk on soft mud and floating vegetation. The toes have no lobes or webbing to help in swimming, but the moorhen is a good swimmer anyway. via All about Birds
One of the most common water birds I see here in Florida….Coot being the most common..Some of these photos were taken at Green Cay..Green Cay is One of my favorite places to bird when we stay in Palm beach area…I love the bright green algae and duck weed…the ability to get close to birds at Green Cay makes my point and shoot camera happy!
