Giant Coot

Fulica gigantea Eydoux & Souleyet, 1841

The Giant Coot (Fulica gigantea) is a species of bird found at lakes in the altiplano from central Peru, through western Bolivia, to north-eastern Chile and extreme north-western Argentina. With a total length of 48–64 cm (19–25 in), it is the second largest extant member of the Rallidae family, after the Takahe, and adults are considered functionally flightless. It is the only coot with reddish legs. An adult male weighed 2.7 kg (6.0 lb) while three adult females weighed 2.03–2.4 kg (4.5–5.3 lb). Source: Wikipedia
