Ashby, Minnesota: Big Coot (a type of duck) Statue

The duck-like American Coot breeds in the region, but lives in the North American southwest. If live coots were as large as this statue, no one would make fun of their name.

Duck statue. Coot (a type of duck) Statue

These birds aren't as flattering/beautiful as most ducks. The birds are common throughout western Minnesota. It looks like this coot is about to take off; however, I don't think it will be going far.
