Recently, I saw a Eurasian coot chick when at Jerringot. I was pretty stoked. I was even more stoked to see an eurasian coot dragging a reed across the water.
At one point, a second coot joined in and tried to drag it. It went away and the solo bird dragged it up to the nest and arranged it just so.
I didn’t see it do it again. Nor did I see any other coots engage is nesting behaviour. Still, it was pretty awesome to see.
