Stuff the ballot box for ugly



This photo of a coot chick, entitled "Bad Hair Day," by Keith Humphrey, is an entry in the 2010 photography contest of Britain's Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust.

The competition includes a People's Choice award, and if you don't go over there and vote, some beautiful swan or something like that is going to win. And wouldn't that be sad?

Democratically,
Wombat (No Relation)

please FEEL BADLY for this coot chick. coots kill off their youngest babies by smacking them around when they ask for food. they keep doing this until they whittle their babies down from 9 or 10 to 2 or 3.

a coot chick is a thing to be pitied.

jgodsey, it sounds like those coots belong on my other blog:

If you can direct me to an especially good reference, post it here.

I wonder if this "ugly ducking" will someday turn into a "swan"...here's to hoping!
