Coop and Coot

 ["There seem to be hardly any birds at my feeder. . ." Anyone who's worked in a nature center has heard this from someone, and the number one explanation is a hawk that's made the feeding station a regular stop. Like this lovely but annoying Cooper's Hawk, which has haunted my Del Haven feeders all winter, here on Sunday. She's eyeing a clucking robin here. Click to enlarge photos.]

[Ice-skating American Coot displaying its unique lobed toes on "Lake Champlain" in the Villas Sunday. The Northern Pintail hen continues there, and a couple American Wigeon could be found as well.]
