Mostly coots


A wagtail on a birch branch.



Lots of coots with chicks.



Some were building or repairing their nests. 







There's a nest in the reeds behind this coot.




A pochard and a shoveler.


Photos taken at Suomenoja, Espoo,
 at the beginning of June (4.6.2016).

  37. Cuteness, EVERYWHERE. I haven't been out in this heat to look for baby coots this year. I'm glad you photographed some for us.

    And the wagtail...they're such dapper dressers...love their 'outfits'.

    Thanks so much for stopping by to share this post with all us birders at I'd Rather B Birdin' this week. It's always appreciated.
