Photo feature: Following the old coots

LAUREN WOOD/THE NATCHEZ DEMOCRAT — Chip Sloan poses as his friend and photographer Michael Duncan snaps a photo of him ushering his whittled wooden coots on the porch of Under-the-Hill Saloon Friday morning. Sloan has plans to take pictures at different “watering holes” along the Mississippi River, the migratory route of the bird, and produce a coffee table book.
