Coot Raft

The name of this bird makes me chuckle, Coot, or more correctly, the American Coot, even funnier. And here they are in great numbers at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge making up what is called a raft defined as a dense flock of floating birds. Lots of them here in Florida for the winter. Get a load of their red eyes! See the Coots! Go, Coot, go! Very groovy.
