Duck - duck - coot

Coots are jerks, but I like their comical behavior. They zoom around very fast, policing and attacking some groups of birds and seemingly protecting others. This one was busy keeping other birds of various species - even coots - away from these two and a few others near the rocks. I don't know the politics of it, I'm sure a coot expert has studied this phenomenon.
