I was able to get out to do a little birding this week, and it started out on a great note. When I stepped out my front door

this American Robin was in the uppermost branches of the Ginko Tree in my front yard. I took that as a good omen!

Once at the pond I had a good walk-about, and found a couple types of Grebes, and many other wintering birds along with the regulars. Here are several I observed.  I have many more I’ll be sharing in the coming days.

Hooded Grebe Adult Winter? I’m not positive what type of Grebe this is. Can anyone ID it for me?

  1. Magnificent shots Deborah. What beautiful birds!!

    • Thank you so much Cybele! I really enjoy seeing the birds that winter here they’re so different from what I normally see.

  2. Agree with above. Horned Grebe. Great photos!

  3. Must thank you for getting me “outdoors” 🙂 I loved these photos.

  4. Good shooting Deborah, all nice and sharp and clear. Not being an ornithologist my guess would be a horned griebe. I’ve posted here and had some good results; https://www.flickr.com/groups/bird_id_group
