Nice catch. They really do have to run across the water to take flight. Even though coots and many of their relatives seem to have weak wings and flying capabilities, they can fly great distances in their migrations. Compared to a powerful duck or goose, they're like small mopeds with tiny, but very fuel-efficient engines.

Thanks for that info Stephen - always good learning more about our birds.
