Slate-colored Coot, Slate-coloured Coot, Andean Coot, Fulica ardesiaca,

This is a common species of upland lakes in the Andes from Ecuador and Colombia south to Chile and Argentina. It can sometimes be found with Giant Coots in open high level Andean lakes. It will also occur in wetlands with emergent vegetation and reed bed edges. This bird was photographed near Coroico, western Bolivia near the Rio Rio Selva, in early August 2012.
