I counted 24 baby moorhens from several different families at the Largo Nature Preserve in mid-May. It’s that time of the year when these crazy looking babies with the big yellow feet are everywhere. They are so funny to watch, always chasing after Mom for a snack. One parent had 4 babies. Two of them had one eye that was still closed. I’m not sure how long they will survive with only one eye. Especially the tiniest darker feathered one. He stayed on the plant while the other ones swam around and stayed close to mom.
