There were three baby coots on the pool this morning. Their parents were very protective of them, chasing off any duck that came any where near their babies. they were taking on ducks much bigger than themselves. When I say come near their babies I mean on the same pool, one of the adults went dashing over to the other side of the pool to chase two ducks away, they were too far away to make out what they were , even with the excellent zoom on my camera. They were taking their parental duties very seriously. I have put a shot of the family in extras.
Thank you to Cailleach for continuing to host Wild Wednesday.
