An American Coot is actually running fast across the surface of the lake because it is being chased at Old Settlers Park in Round Rock, TX.
"The American Coot (Fulica americana) is a bird of the family Rallidae, inhabiting wetlands and open water bodies. Measuring 34 to 43 cm (13 to 17 in) in length and 58 to 71 cm (23 to 28 in) across the wings, adults have a short thick white bill and white frontal shield, which usually has a reddish-brown spot near the top of the bill between the eyes. Body mass in females ranges from 427 to 628 g (0.94 to 1.38 lb) and in males from 576 to 848 g (1.27 to 1.87 lb)." -Wikipedia
