Family of Coots
Sorry Ron but I think that you will find these are Moorhens.
moorhens or coots a wonderful pitcure Ron.
Great discussion now. These could be juvenile coots....
It's a nice shot!
Definitely Moorhens :-)
Moorhens, coots? Don't know, it's still a cracking picture.--It has made me think of spring in what in Ontario is still the depths of Winter; that's definitlely a plus.
Just checked a bird guide, and they are Moor hen or some times called water hen. I must look closer next time. You can always rely on WW to put you right. Cheers.
