BOUNTIES IN MAINE—I would like to know if there is a bounty on crows, hawks and owls in Maine—If so, what parts must be presented? I would also like to have some person describe a coot? Is it what is sometimes called a “devil’s diver?“
I do not know of any such bounty. Ask some of your town or county officials as they are in better position to know than we are. The coot is a water or shore bird, found most abundantly along the marshes. It is a dumpy looking bird of a slaty blue color and about the size of a bantam hen. The edges of the toes have a scalloped web. Beak, tail and legs are short. I think that the bird you speak of as the “devil’s diver” is the grebe, or “hell diver.”
