American Coot Chicks Caught Bobbing Around Golden Gate Park (PHOTOS, VIDEO)

What On Earth Are These Trippy Little Creatures?

Another amazing wildlife sighting in Golden Gate Park, brought to you by the craziest-looking baby birds we've ever seen.

Nature photographer extraordinaire David Cruz snapped images of adorable American Coot chicks bobbing around the park's North Lake.


These beautiful babies won't stay so colorful forever, though. American Coots grow up to be grey-feathered adults with only a small mark left of their eccentric childhoods.

Take a look through the slideshow below to see the amazingly colorful birds before it's too late:
