Outnumbered

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.
