I watched a couple of coots feeding their hungry chicks. the chicks seemed to be well able to search for their own food but still preferred to follow their parents around begging to be fed πŸ˜„ they remind me of the three blackbird youngsters that until yesterday pretended to be little featherless chicks do that their father stuffs the worms in their beaks. in reality they are as big as their father and mr blackbird looked positively frazzled. today for the first time they had to take the worms themselves instead of sitting next to the bowl and just open their beaks for dad to feed them πŸ˜†

American coot feeding baby. a severe knee sprain had me handicapped for a few days but my husband took me to lake merced park where this mother was feeding the chicks in the reeds #bestnatureshot #planetbirds #feather_perfection #eye_spy_birds #your_best_birds #pocket_birds #kings_birds#bns_birds #best_birds_of_ig #thetweetsuites #nuts_about_birds #natgeoyourshot #bestbirdshots#birds#birds.nature#kings_birds_#birds_adored#birdlife_insta #birds#coot#cootchick#wadingbirds#chick#lakemercedpark#californiabirding

American coot chick. it may look somewhat like a duck but along with some of the reflection you can see the scaled legs and toes instead of webbed feet #bestnatureshot #planetbirds #feather_perfection #eye_spy_birds #your_best_birds #pocket_birds #kings_birds#bns_birds #best_birds_of_ig #thetweetsuites #nuts_about_birds #natgeoyourshot #bestbirdshots#birds#birds.nature#kings_birds_#birds_adored#birdlife_insta #birds#coot#cootchick#wadingbirds#chick#lakemercedpark#californiabirding

Some potato quality photos but i saw so many birds this weekend! trees full of great t*t and blue t*t fledglings, swallows catching the midges at dusk, coots and their chicks, swans and their cygnets, and my first sighting of great crested grebes while they built a nest! πŸ¦†tiny common frogs were on their way to the water, and of course the bumblebees were buzzing. 🐝 for such a small area there is so much wildlife here. #linlithgow #linlithgowloch #linlithgowpeel #natureisonourdoorstep #natureisforeveryone #protectourbirds #protectourwildlife #eurasiancoot #cootchick #bigwideworld #swallows #greatcrestedgrebe #breedingseason #babybirds #babieseverywhere #newlife

A selection of birds we saw on the way to the shops πŸ˜„ i still can't get over the feet size of the coot chicks! such funny little egg-heads.

the seagull pic was such good timing, as my boyfriend managed to get it swooping over us, using a long lense (which for anyone who has tried getting a fast, close-by subject in focus with a long lense; will already know it's not easy!). happy weekend to you all! .
