It’s fall here in Wisconsin, so I had to share a fall photo. Betty Davidson supplied me with another lovely picture she took (my guess in Minnesota somewhere since that is where she lives), so I thought I’d share it. Most of those ducks in the picture are coots. Coots always remind me of fall. I grew up on a lake in Madison, WI and every fall duck that normally wouldn’t be there would grace us with their presence. Coots aren’t anything special to look at, they are all black with whitish beaks, but they make a very nice beep, beep, beep sound. And when there is a large group of them, like in this picture, the sound is quite loud.
