Eurasian Coot

Fulica atra

Status: Very Rare (< 5 records)

Origins: Widespread across much of Europe, Asia and Africa. It is often considered conspecific with the Australian Coot and is closely related to the American Coot.

Record Details: One record for Newfoundland, when one of three birds observed in Exploits Harbour (Notre Dame Bay) was collected in December 1927. Notably, this was likely related to a weather system that brought large numbers of Northern Lapwings and other European species to Newfoundland & Labrador during that same period.
