Catching the Red-eye

Eared-Grebe

This is a Breeding adult which you can easily ID by the fan of golden feathers at the “ear”. This image is from early spring where I spied it swimming in one of the ponds at the golf course where we live.

Fun fact- Grebes have lobed rather than fully webbed feet that sit at the rear of their body.

    1. I usually recognize French words since I’ve been trying to learn to speak French since the 90’s, but I didn’t realize Grebe was French! I suspect because I haven’t seen it with the accent over the e until now!

    1. It is isn’t it. Their golden feathers in breeding season make them so striking and handsome too. Thanks, Jennie!

      I just ordered the boys a Halloween book each. The Witches by Roald Dahl for #1 and The Little Blue Truck’s Halloween for our Littlest. I hope they like them!

      I hope you have a lovely week! xx
