But the mud hen is not a member of the chicken order of birds and though he spenns much of his time in slushy swamps, his glossy plumage is always neat and clean. He is, however, about the size of a chunky chicken and his favorite habitat tends to be muddy. Actually, the mud hen is a Gruiforme bird and his order includes the cranes, rails and an assortment of other A COMPLETE TELEVISION PRODUCTION STUDIO SO COMPACT IT CAN BE CARRIED IN A STATION 'fWGON HAS BEEN DEVELOPED.

He is also known as the coot, The expression "crazy-as-a-coot" most likely refers to his wild calls has nothing to do with being as mad as a wet hen. At different seasons of the year, the loud-mouthed coot is at home in most fresh water regions from Alaska to Equador. But he makes only brief stopovers in certain east-central states as he migrates between his summer and winter homes. The mud hen stays north until ice begins to form on the water. As a rule, he is the last migrating bird to leave in the fall and the most likely one to return before the first springtime robin. In early February or mid- November you may have seen him with a flock of his kinfolk flying overhead. When you know his field marks you cannot mistake him for any other migrating bird. His overall color is very dark, blending smoothly from slate grey below to glossy black on his back, head and neck. He is the only blackish bird of his type with a sturdy white bill. In flight he reveals ribbons of white under his wings. He flies with his neck thrust forward and legs dangling — and his legs and feet seem for too big for him. Most members of the Grui- forme Order live and nest by freshwater lakes and streams, but do not have webbed feet. However, the coot has lobes, or flaps of skin, along the sides of his oversized toes. He is a better swimmer and diver than most of his relatives and he uses his feet to build up speed when he takes off from the water. The chunky, almost black mud hen is not choosy about his diet. He devours small fishes, tadpoles, snails and water bugs, along with salads of assorted waterweeds. He enjoys worms, chases frogs and nibbles an assortment of roots, seeds and grasses. The nesting season begins in early spring. Both parents toil to assemble a loose pile of reeds and rushes. The shaggy nest is partially concealed along the reedy brink of the water, sometimes on dry land and sometimes floating like a raft. The dozen or so eggs are buff, thickly speckled with brown or black. The parents take turns during the three-week incubation period and continue working together to tend and educate the chicks. The frisky youngsters, wearing fulffy black down, reddish brown bill and collars, are eager to get going soon after they hatch. Send questions on postal card to Ask Andy, P.O.
