Coots fighting

Coots fighting and meaning it

Coots always appear to be innocent little creatures  swimming along and minding their own business.  They do however have a dark side.  They can be really aggressive and I mean aggressive.  I was some distance from these fighting birds but you can see from the picture they seriously intended to give it all they’ve got.  The vanquished fled across the water at some speed.  It started off with two but a couple more came paddling quite a long way to join in.  It seems they just like a good fight.  They are well known for being aggressive though it’s not always so apparent.
