At A Glance

The locations in the badges are the biomes where we’ve met them (and where we think you’ll be most likely to come across them). That doesn’t mean they don’t hang out in other places.

American Coots

You'll find American coots, aka not ducks in lakes throughout North Louisiana. Like grebes -- also not ducks, coots hang out near the shore. Unlike their unduck friends, coots often hang out groups, sometimes in large flocks. You're most likely to find these birds in North Louisiana in the winter.
