  1. Yes the tufted ducks are really cute. The sunset (sunrise?) pics ARE wonderful and I like the coot even if they are bullies. Leo looks much loved. Beautiful pictures (as always). Thank you!

    • The tufteds have been here on and off all year but the’re winter visitors mostly. Coots fight if there’s more than one pair on the pond, there’s usually about 5 pairs. Leo’s burdened with memories.
