Getting a bit big for the nest by ludwigsdiana

Getting a bit big for the nest

Coots are such amazing nest builders. It takes forever to stack all these dried reeds so high. I was surprised to see such big chicks still there. I liked the reflecting reeds in the water too.
The detail is incredible. So interesting.

they are big indeed. I agree the reflected reeds make a lovely textured background.

that water looks so fab - they are getting a good size, but mum and dad are staying right over them

Lovely reflections from this crowded nest.

Agree Diana, they build nests in the canals of Delft with whatever is available, sadly that involves a lot of plastics as well; glad to see ‘your’ nests are free of that ☺️

aww, sweet, and a good shot to show the height of the nest. Really neat. The chicks are big and must be getting ready to be out in the big wide world.

Wonderful capture of this coot family.

With such a comfy nest no wonder the chicks don't want to leave.

Such cooties. Lovely capture

Fascinating! Love the scene, and the bokeh is amazing!

It's a high-rise Coot style. Your comment about the size of the babies made me smile- I know several people who have older children living at home- way past time to fly the nest- who say the same thing- you're too big to be here! Good shot.

Beautiful capture Diana. Love the ripples in the water as a background.
October 15th, 2020  
Neat shot of the family

Coots are so ubiquitous around here, but I still find them charming!
