Eurasian Coot (mom and babies)

Fulica altra

Description:

Another common and beautiful sight these days in the belgian ponds. Luckily there seems to be enough food so the parents are being nice to their babies and feeding them all.

Thanks, Gerardo. The babies have this bald but very lively colored head. I guess it helps parents to figure where is the baby´s face (?)
