So I don't usually share 2 bird images in a row. There is a theme over on G+ called Bird Poker and I actually had this image that fir for it today. Plus I liked this shot and the bird and I am hoping to find out what it is. The red eye and the white bill are similar to a Coot but the birds I have seen that I knew were Coots were lighter in color and did not have the white feathers on the butt. :-) If anyone knows what this is, I'd love an ID in the comments. Thanks!
