WILLD BIRD WEDNESDAY - Coot parents feeding chicks

This is a Coot which I photographed some time ago although I really made this post to show you the video.

Below is the video which Eileen, my friend from the Isle of Wight, gave me to use in one of my posts of parents feeding their 2 chicks.  I think they are cute although I cannot  say beautiful.

I can be accessed at   


If there is a black space below, click it and the video will appear.

I hope you enjoyed the VIDEO.

Thanks for visiting and also for leaving any comments.  

Also thank you Eileen.


  1. so cute. those chicks are so vulnerable looking.

  2. The coot video is adorable!!! The chick almost looks like a tiny vulture, because he doesn't have much hair on his head yet!

  3. Great photo and video. The little ones are so well hidden in among the rushes.

  4. Such an interesting bird. In the first shot the adult almost looks like a wooden decoy. What a fun video of the mama and baby. I did enjoy it.

  5. Coots are beautiful, but their chicks not so much. I loved the video.

  6. A favourite bird of mine Margaret... a lovely post.

  7. It's always fun to watch the parents and young interacting. Cute babies.
