BIRD D'POT AND CAMERA CRITTERS

                       Linking with Anni's Bird D'Pot, and Misty's Camera Critters.


 This is my fifth and last post on Strasbourg, France.  When we were walking alongside the river I noticed a black bird.  I believe he is a Eurasian Coot (Fulica atra).  You can read about them here.  In the first photo you can see him poking his head out of the left hole at river level.

  3. What a gorgeous bird - though I do wonder why he/she was in that hole.

  7. Coots do look elegant in there black and white, but most I have seem are very bed tempered!

  8. That is such an interesting bird. I don't believe I've ever seen it. I love that cute white cap on its head.

  12. That's funny -- poked his head out and evidently liked what he saw!
