The Netherlands summer 2017: Coot babies

It's very common to see, often right in the middle of some big city in one of the canals:
a nest of Eurasian Coots with lots of "cootlings"  Like this one in Delft. (Meerkoet in Dutch)

 Mum seemed to be feeding as well as showing them what to do 

like washing edible weed

go get some more

 Another nest, the chicks are older and have lost the red coloring on their heads and bills.
They should be out looking for food themselves...

 Look at it's feet!
