  24. I'm going to confess something horrible- as a little girl growing up in Florida, the neighborhood kids used to play "coot shoot"... no guns, just trying to hit one of the zillions of coots with a pebble- we always missed of course. Thanks for that memory, I think.
    Your blogger is acting like mine- I just posted and it's showing up beneath yesterday's post... strange.

  25. Was this before or after the mother came back and started attacking you?

  37. Love baby birds. Once, while I was visiting a farmhouse in Ensenada, Mexico, I was observing a chicken running about with all of her chicks. They fairly covered the ground! Chirp chirping. Fuzzy little yellow balls. I felt a few raindrops and looked up at the sky (as we do when we feel a raindrop). I looked back down and they were suddenly GONE. Their mother was still standing there and it didn't take me long to see all of those little legs sticking out from under her wings. You couldn't see a sign of them except those little leggies.

    Gotta love the mommies.

  42. That's a tough shot - they look so vulnerable.

    There was a boy in grade school that use to tell me I was coot. Maybe this is what he was talking about.
