Coot hiding or making the nest?

It's too early to make a nest, or is it?

  12. Maybe they are just practicing. Some birds do that and other build a nest early to entice the female.

  13. It seems that it might not be too early. And the coot would know - better than us anyway. A be prepared sort of bird - and beautiful with it. Though that nest (if nest it is) looks as if rather a lot of padding will be necessary. Or they breed coots tough...

    1. It produces 2-3 per year eggs, so it can be nesting.
