கம்புள் – Coot

Coot

கம்புள் – சம்பங்கோழி  according to some commentators. This is a water fowl.  This bird lives in the ponds (பொய்கை) and fields (பழனம்). It has a white forehead (வெண் நுதல்), and calls in intervals (அரிக்குரல்).  From the description in the poem (Ainkurunuru 85), it appears to be the coot.
