I posted a photo of this little guy last night. I think he is so nicely colored I wanted to share a few shots that show off his pattern.
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 mentioned yesterday how much rain we have been getting lately. Today I found these ducks that apparently chose to relocate from the nearby waterway to the new lake in the middle of an apartment complex.
They splashed and played
Ans Ms. Duck showed off her beautiful coloring
They appeared to be enjoying their little vacation lake!
Do ducks have gangs?
I stopped by a local lake today to take some pictures. These 2 ducks started chasing the little guy with the black head and puffed up feathers. Every time he slowed down they kicked up water and took out after him again.
When he finally reached the shore he started chasing 2 ducks that kinda looked like little outcast ducks.
I’m not sure…but I think there maybe a need for some duck police to patrol these waters!
