Eared Grebe with Chick

More grebes!   This time, Eared Grebe (Podiceps nigricollis) with a chick.  To my delight I've found an Eared Grebe colony in a slough close to a road.  

The birds are skittish about a vehicle stopping so I can only snap a few quick (and blurry) pix and move along.  But anyway, here's one newly hatched chick tucked into Mom's feathers.

More Eared Grebes to come...


  1. Glad to see the return to more regular posts K. You'll provide nice reading variety as we spend next 2 weeks at the cabin starting tomorrow.

  2. Thanks. I shall try to get something new up daily. Have a lovely time out there.
