Parent Coot sitting on the nest

It was windy on the canal this morning, and the parent coot’s feathers were getting all ruffled.  That couldn’t have been comfortable.

Later on, though, the four babies were learning about eating the algae and moss that grows along the banks again, and they were adorable.

I also got to see some ducklings up close too.
