Mama coot with a baby coot next to her

Baby sighting!

Unfortunately, being so far away from the nest makes it more difficult to get good shots.  But that little fuzzy lump next to Mama is definitely a baby.

And since she’s still sitting on the nest, I bet she has more eggs about to hatch, which will mean more babies.  But this little one is walking around and enjoying being on the nest.

Mama duck with all her ducklings

Also, there was a giant brood of ducklings – I counted at least 15. I don’t know if they were all hers, but she did have two drakes hanging around so I’m hoping they’re helping out a little because that’s a lot of ducklings there.
