Loons get too much credit, it’s coots that are actually crazy

You may have heard the expression, “crazy as a loon”, well whoever came up with that was clearly uninformed.  Coots are the ones that have truly gone off the deep end both literally and figuratively.  In my book loons are only slightly nutty, if you insist upon full blown insanity then coots are definitely more for you.

These weird and amazing little waterbirds are very entertaining to watch!  I’ve seen one coot chase after an entire flock of ducks, I’ve seen them try to take on a fully grown Canada goose single handed and I’ve seen them fiddle in the most comical ways.

If you’re looking for endless entertainment and waterfowl fun please forget the loons and go find a nice flock of coots.
