    These guys are so common that I don't normally take too many pics of them, but I love to see birds eating and this guy seemed to be enjoying his meal.

    American Coot portrait. He made me work even though stationary; kept dozing off & head fell to breast, then eye was closed or half open.. I so wanted to shout "attention!" but didn't. Was drab with orig. gray background, so I added some color to complement his good looks.

    The Coot is the most common of birds at our local lakes. The chicks are so homely they're almost cute. Lake Murray, San Diego, CA Nikon CoolPix 775, May 9, '02.
