Coot scooting


This American Coot didn't seemed to be as frightened of me as the others ducks as he non-nonchalantly passed by. Maybe in his eye I wasn't as ugly as his fellow swimmers thought. Audubon Park lagoon.

I like this bird. It is about as nice a coot as there is.

Beautiful photo! Lots of these birds are pretty aggressive and not people shy these days.

My sister had a seagull try to snatch a slimfast bar from her while we were on Liberty Island!

I love coots. They are strange and unique. Have a wonderful weekend.
