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.

A Good Day Birding

Copyright © 2015 Deborah M. Zajac  ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

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?
