Of all the waterfowl I’ve seen at Coulon Park –
and great blue heron.
The one with the greatest numbers gets the least respect from me – always in the background and never featured.
Apologies to you american coot but even your name does you a disservice.
A nondescript bird in grey and black, they flock together unaware they are mostly ignored.
I stopped last week to enjoy the daisies
and found them doing the same.
They seemed happy
to finally get some attention from me.
