A bunch of these little guys lived at the lake behind our hotel – in Ruidoso NM
They are called American Coots. I love that name!! They are cute and have a goofy name…that makes me smile!
They were a little challenging to snap pictures of. Every time I tried to get a little closer they would take off running, then flying into the lake.
I had no idea a coot was a bird. Huh!
They are cute coots! 😃
