Coots at Edenbridge

Coot Lakefront Homes at Edenbridge

Aren't they coot? These coots were swimming on the lake that lies between Outback Steakhouse and Carabbas and the community of Edenbridge in Bonita Springs, Florida.   I was driving from The Fresh Market to West Terry Street and saw them. I thought I’d pull over and take their picture.  As usual, there were a couple of herons and egrets fishing on the shore, too.  Coots are one of my favorite Florida ducks because they have a cartoon quality to their look.  They’re tiny, black and sporting bright beaks.
