Thun, Switzerland — Aare River

We spent a night in Murren, Switzerland. On the way, we drove into the town of Thun and walked along the Aare River and Lake Thun for maybe an hour.

There were several Eurasian Coots in the river and along the shore of the lake. They looked very much like American Coots except that the white on the bill extends up the forehead in a shield.

I saw others during the week in the Langer See in Böblingen and along the river walk in Strasbourg, France.
