Coot Imposter

Apr 19

Coots, Coots, Coots are every where this time of year. I like to watch them when they’re in town. Did you ever notice that
Coots swim in large groups? Sometimes you can see over 100
Coots all together floating around a lake or big river.

Their colors are always black and grey. They are very stylish looking, duck-type birds.

But Today, I spotted an imposter! Did he think no one would notice him? There floating inside the Coot flotilla was a black, white duck with a brownish-purplish head. Who does he think he is? A Coot?

It was the Lesser Scaup pretending to be a Coot.
I can of course add him to my Great Year List!
