Coots at Lilypons

I visited Lilypons yesterday and found a second coot had joined the one already there.  It was fun to observe them as they fed on aquatic plants in the koi pond...








 

 
 

While not as colorful and flashy as other waterfowl, coots were once hunted, using decoys, for sport and food.
