Has anyone seen American Coots with pure white bills and frontal shields like the Eurasian?  I had one at Birdseye Boat Ramp today that was like that.  It was pretty distinct compared to the other coots with it.  The bill and shield shape otherwise looked like an American.  Didn't look for the undertail coverts.  Probably just a variant.
