My baby coots are growing up

What a joy when I discovered these baby coots several weeks ago. Who’d have thought I would see them several times and be able to document their growth? What odd little cuties! (or as my cousin called them, “cooties” 🥰) And how sweet they look at all ages. ❤

    1. Thank you! When I first discovered them there were quite a few, such a funny little crew! Most of them must survive because I see coots everywhere!

    Beautiful captures of your little cooties Lisa, it is a thrill to watch them grow and pass through their progressive plumage maturation.
