Summer Coot

So many birds go north in the summer that the waters of the North Basin east of the park sometimes harbor no readily visible birds. Therefore, when a bird or birds appear, it becomes noteworthy. Coots in winter are so numerous as to be overlooked like gulls or crows. This summer I’ve seen just one pair of them, hanging around the Open Circle viewpoint near the northeast corner of the park. Here’s one of them.
