Welcome to the forum Phainopepla6. It is very gratifying to see young people like yourself taking up this fabulous hobby of birding.
I would say that is an American Coot so you are off to a good start. And don't worry about the quality of your pictures; that will improve over time. As for the camera - we all started out with a basic set-up and then once you get comfortable with that it’s time to start looking at an upgrade. Watch the Buy & Sell section of this forum because sometimes you can get a pretty good deal.
Happy Birding!
