Good looks at one with two taking flight in opposite directions larger thank expected with neck outstretched ; similar to immature gallinule and from a distance considered coot; extremely skittish with fluttery flight 8 feet high and three times to land vice water. Originally at waters edge but comfortable in high grass and shrubs 50 yards from pond.
