Two baby coots swim around the nest while Mama sits on it.

There’s definitely at least one adventurous little one – constantly swimming around, following Dad, cheeping away while Mama sits on the nest and clicks at it.

The other little one in this photo is a bit adventurous as well, but still happy to hide under Mama from time to time.

Dad likes to scare off anyone who comes near the nest. He furiously paddles towards ducks, then starts flapping his wings, speeding up, shrieking at them.  So they move on.

Because of this, the ducks tend to hang out on the brick walkway right by our office, but they don’t have ducklings, so I’m not bothered about them.

But today I saw a swan flying as well. That’s something I haven’t seen before.
