    i'd never seen a baby American coot till this summer, when a pair of coots had a late brood at a nearby marsh. by the time the youngsters ventured out of the nest, there were only two of them left, and a couple of days later, one of those disappeared... these shots show the the one remaining chick (which has made it to adulthood) and some tender moments with mom...

    Fantastic photo; I see dozens of these birds nearly every day but I've never seen a chick
