A Coot Invasion?
As I walked around the park
these birds followed me.

Do you see the rabbit in the photo above?

One of these birds is not like the others ;--)

I'll bet he has an intrresting family tree.


Is that some type of fancy pigeon? I don't really know my birds very well. He is beautiful though. :o)

Great photos of the pigeon and the coots are neat. I really had to look for the bunny. I was expected a lighter color on the bunny. I've never seen that many coots before.
Thanks for sharing.

Is that not a pigeon? Looks a lot like one.
I smile every time a hear the word Coot - such a funny name for a bird.
Poor bunny - outnumbered bigtime!
Nice shots!

Those are awesome pictures. I love all the birds. I enlarged to see the bunny, if you hadn't mentioned it I wouldn't have noticed it. I would love to visit that park, looks like a lot of wildlife.
