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!

Back to the Library

books from the library

The Kickapoo Valley Library is a beautiful building. It is very old, it was designed by an architect who was a student of FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT.

Frank Lloyd Wright is a famous architect who is from Wisconsin.
His famous house and studio, Taliesin, are located in Spring Green, Wisconsin. Frank Lloyd Wright trained a lot of architects in Wisconsin. Mr. Wright’s style of architecture is called Prairie School.

There are a lot of Prairie School style buildings in Wisconsin, libraries, banks, houses, warehouses, garages, and even an airport in Madison.

Did you like my book report? I am still at the library now, and I have at least 12 books on my table related to Frank Lloyd Wright.

I like Frank Lloyd Wright’s architecture because he believed that buildings should blend into the environment.
