A pair of Eurasian coots have their nest on the canal outside the office.

I’m always happy to see them, especially when they start building their nest in the spring.

Today, there are three babies!

The adult coots and the three baby coots

Two of the babies are by the coot in the water, and the third is up by the coot in the nest. You can make out their bright red featherless heads.

I see them every morning as I walk into work, so I plan to keep on taking pictures of them and updating this post with the latest. With any luck, we’ll see them grow up!
