What Is That?

This is Port Rowan Harbour with the very frozen Lake Erie in the background. I thought the black creature might be a black chicken or a Moorhen. It had found this little piece of open water & seemed to be alone. When I downloaded the pictures & checked for an ID,(www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/american_coot/id) I decided it was an adult American Coot! Lifer for me!

I am still searching for the 1,000+ Tundra Swans which were seen on their migration route near here. I think I missed them again...
