Coot (Fulica atra) - found in many water bodies of the Krasnodar Territory and Adygea. She especially prefers shallow estuaries or lakes, the shores of which are overgrown with aquatic plants. This is due to nutrition and nesting characteristics. Firstly, the coot is predominantly a herbivorous bird, occasionally only, it can eat aquatic invertebrates or small fish. Secondly, this bird builds a nest on the water, and reeds, cattails, etc. become the building material.

The length is 36-38 cm, the wingspan is 19.5-23.5 cm, and the weight is 500-1000 g.

The coot can often be seen in urban water bodies, such as the Karasunskie Lakes in Krasnodar, where it is a common bird, or in the lagoon on Malaya Zemlya in Novorossiysk. Often, in the vicinity of it, you can see the great crested grebe, with which the coot's habitats coincide.

In the Krasnodar Territory, the coot nests and hibernates. Only if the reservoir freezes, it can fly to clean water, including the Black Sea coast.
