American Coot chick
Photographer: Lynn Cleveland
Location: Montezuma NWR, NY
This American Coot chick, one of a brood of 6 chicks, broke away from its siblings to feed along the edge of a patch of duckweed. When the chick picked it's head up out of the water, a piece of duckweed suspended in a water droplet hanging from the chick's beak was captured in the image.
