Along with the pelicans and cormorants, the lake is busy with coots. They are everywhere! Today, we watched hundreds move along the shore. A pelican investigated to see what was so interesting about this particular part of the bank. One brave lone coot decided to see what the crows were up to. They were eating a fish until a turkey vulture came over to claim it. They thought they would be able to trick him/her into leaving, but it didn’t work. Click on pictures to enlarge.
We took a splendid drive this afternoon to a lake we haven’t visited before. There were many turkey vultures soaking up the rain. We drove back downtown to the airport ponds, then the river to enjoy the many egrets and herons fishing in the rain.
