Eurasian Coots

There is a family of coots breeding very near our house, so I can follow the developments closely. A few days ago the first two chicks came peeping from under their mothers belly and soon after their was a whole bunch of them. One of the most daring went exploring on his own. Ready for his first swim.

A familie meerkoeten nestelt vlak bij ons huis, dus ik kan de ontwikkelingen op de voet volgen. Een paar dagen geleden kwamen de eerste twee  kuikens vanonder de moeder tevoorschijn piepen en al snel waren het er een heleboel. Eentje waagde zich al bij het water. Klaar om te zwemmen.
