Mattawoman Creek- End of Winter

2012.03.12

This is a 'raft' of American Coots... interesting birds with red eyes, and unusual feet (I didn't get a good shot of their feet, but if you look up American Coot Feet you can see images on google :).

Closer view of the coots, red eyes, white beak with black spot at the end... the origin of 'old coot'. Coots also make up about 80% of the diet of eagles. They let us paddle very very near them, they didn't want to fly...

josy63 Fantastic set Paula...
I like these birds which hide from the wind, behind their feathers
And these two arms outspread, to receive all the beauty of the world

stabeez The coots are interesting but I'm thrilled that the Herons are there. I don't think we'll see them for another month. The best, though, are the shots of Kristy, Wendy and You. I think I'll get cleaning our kayaks and maybe in a few weeks we can do this too.
