Rafted Up

I spent a day at the Western Treatment Plant aka Werribee Sewage Farm this weekend - and a good day it was.

Although these pictures do not show a rare - or even appreciated bird - the sheer number of Eurasian Coots in these pictures gives you so idea of the numbers of birds that this location supports.  More pictures to follow soon.




You can can find more shots from around the world at Our World Tuesday.

Hello, it is cool seeing any large group of birds. The raft of coots is great, wonderful photos. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

We have American Coots by the hundreds to thousands, especially in big lakes and along the Gulf Coast in the south in winter. Looks like yours like to form gangs as well.

Someone told me last summer that "raft" is the collective noun for coots -- and how appropriate it is.
