Russian Eurasian Coot…

I was fooled! I have been wondering why we had ducks that seemed to be not able to quack. They made a weird noise and then other strange noises. Well it seems after looking closely, they are Coots, not ducks….There goes my, “What a stupid duck!” theory…

imagesI saw their feet and said that is not a duck!

Then Sveta and I looked up what the heck it was. This is a Coot…

They have clown feet in my opinion and they make strange noises. I love them and we have a whole pond full. The smaller pond below is Coot city and the bigger pond is duck city…

Therefore, instead of saying, “What a Hoot!” I now say, “What a Coot!”

Then I recorded its strange sound, as it swims around. The sound gets much louder and urgent, if it sees me and Boza…

So while I was trying to take pictures of this strange duck! It was not a duck, but a coot. An Eurasian Coot…

Life is so wonderful…

The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do.
You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward. - Amelia Earhart
