Fethered friends

overslept

Little Binky, are you still in bed?

overslept

Hey Granny, where are you going?

You’re back already?

And you have a surprise for me…

I love surprises… Coming…

overslept

Granny, where is the surprise?

overslept

I can’t find anything…

come on, Granny, tell me what it is…

overslept

you made pictures…

with your handy ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

while you were on the way ย to do some shopping..

overslept

There was a nest, but when the coot saw Granny,

she swam towards her to get some crumbs…

CAM00682

Here you see the nest with 4 eggs..

Granny, can you give me your glasses…

CAM00683

Mom Coot was very hungry…

CAM00684

and Dad Coot helped her eating…

CAM00686

Granny told her to get back to the nest…

because she didn’t stop eating…

CAM00687

and she did…

CAM00688

but then she returned to get some more crumbs…

CAM00689

Granny gave them some more crumbs

CAM00690

and then finally they were sated..

CAM00691

and mom Coot swam back to her nest..

CAM00692

rubbed herself up…

CAM00693

and rubbed herself up…

CAM00695

and rubbed herself up…

CAM00696

while Dad Coot kept an eye on her…

CAM00697

and Granny..

CAM00698

and after half an hour of cleaning…

CAM00700

she finally made a start…

CAM00701

to go…

CAM00703

and sit on her eggs again…

While Granny was giving the Coots some crumbs,

there were other Coots coming out of their hiding places,

They all were very hungry,

probably because of the long sit on their nest.

Usually they don’t come so near,

but now they’re starting to follow her

and she could almost pet them.

Maybe they remember that she was feeding them during wintertime…

Binky schoot

I need some caressing too right now, Granny…

yes, yes…purr purr…

What you say, there’s more to come,

but I have to promiss that I won’t slobber..

Of course I do, I never slobber..

it’s not in my nature…

CAM00707

Here are the first little chicks,

with their mom and dad..

…and Coot the bodyguard..

CAM00708

Granny, the chicks are so… so…

CAM00709

tiny winy succulent cutie cute…

CAM00712

No.. honest, I don’t dribble…

IMG_0075

I can’t stand it anymore…

IMG_0074

…honest, there’s no water running out of my mouth…

Lente1

but can you please open the door for me..

I want to surprise somebody take a walk now.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone ๐Ÿ™‚

    This what I call “almost a fable” . Wonderful story Angelswhisper. I loved it. v.

    PS: near where I lived in California there was a park by the marshes.There was a man-made lake and squads of coots everywhere. So you brought me cherished memories.

    Little Binky, never mind what Granny says, go ahead and drool (this is Chuckles) because I would drool and chase those, I mean, I would sit and watch all of the lovely little meals, I mean, coots too. the nerve of some people making false accusations…hummph! I got your back, LB. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I wish I could come there. I would not bother the little coots (are they ducks?), but I would check for poop. That would be delicious! Maybe Granny can at least give you some of the crumbs, Little B…..?

    Love and licks,

    Thank you granny for feeding the coots. Poor little binky that has to be so hard to see those succulent little cuties and not drool.

    Oh BInky, that was rather mean of Granny, showing you those delicious looking little cuties. She was really lucky to have the coots come so close and to see the babies but, to put you through all that, well, it just isn’t good enough ๐Ÿ™‚
