Bird’s ID – Red-fronted Coot – # 226

Red-fronted Coot


The Red-fronted Coot (Fulica rufifrons) is a species of bird in the family Rallidae. At 36–43 cm (14–17 in), it is a mid-sized species of coot. It is found in Argentina, southern Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, southern Peru and Uruguay. There are also records from Bolivia and the Falkland Islands. Its natural habitat is swamps and well-vegetated lakes and ponds.

 I  found and photographed this bird in southern Peru (Arequipa coast).

The Red-fronted Coot is # 226 on my “Lifer” list.
