Red-knobbed Coot (Fulica cristata)

Red-knobbed Coot or Knobbed Coot (Fulica cristata)
South Africa, 1997

The red-knobbed coot or crested coot (Fulica cristata), is a member of the rail and crake bird family, the Rallidae.

It is a resident breeder across much of Africa and in southernmost Spain on freshwater lakes and ponds. It builds a nest of dead reeds near the water's edge or more commonly afloat, laying about 8 eggs (or more in good conditions). However, its behaviour towards its own young is so aggressive that only a few are likely to survive to adulthood.
