Really… coots are not common admits. This coot was found stranded in a parking lot at Panorama High School in Guthrie County. Cassie is holding for observation, suspect coot thought the wet parking lot was a pond and landed. Just like the grebes we admitted this past spring, they need to be in water to take off for flight. If no injuries or issues observed in a couple days… bon voyage.
