This coot chick is one of the same ones I posted about a week ago. At that time there were three, now only two. At first I thought that the nest had been abandoned, then the rain came down. A few minutes later both parents and the two chicks emerged from the reeds and headed for home. One adult climbed up onto the nest, and the chicks followed; the adult shuffled them under her wing, and settled down to last it out.
The chicks aren't appreciably larger than last week.
