Coot flock

The last several times I was at Bald Eagle State Park there was a large flock of American Coots foraging, diving and rough-housing around one of the better vantage points looking across the lake. I think it is amusing to watch them jump out of the water before they dive under and then pop back out. I took this video early in the morning when the lake was too fogged over to see any other waterfowl, such as the Black Scoters that had been present the previous evening.
