The coot baby at Echo Park lake is getting bigger and bigger. Yesterday, when we reached the usual spot on the lake, the coots were nowhere to be seen. It was just me and a few hungry ducks.
But suddenly there was mom, making a beeline for me from the island. She came over to say hi (and eat). And pretty soon along came Coot Jr., also chugging along from the island.
They gave the ducks a run for their money on the cracker crumbs.
Esmeralda considered the outing a success.
