|Eurasian Coot (fulica atra)|
The Coot is larger than a moorhen and often mistaken as a moorhen (Gallinula
Brisson) ..(or the male moorhen..:)). But unlike the moorhen Coot has no white markings in the body except for a white bill and shield on its face.
Lots of moorhens are also cohabiting in this canal with mallards(anas platyrhynchos),swans, ducks..
Voice: A Loud Kuak-Kuak sound
Using this picture taken in my point and shoot camera to show the somewhat symbolic reflection of another creature's nest on the water.:)

I like the colors and the reflection is very nice, I just wish there was more of the bird since that seems to be the main subject
