Is A Coot A Duck?

The American Coot seen here may look like just another duck to some. If you look at their feet they have long, lobed-shaped toes. Their bill is very small compared to an average duck and they have reddish eyes.
They do swim around like a duck and even spend time in the company of other ducks but they are not a duck. They are actually related to rails
