I usually make a special trip to Woolston Eyes near Warrington each Spring to see the Black-necked Grebes. Fantastic little birds, that when in their breeding plumage are something you must see. Not a great deal bigger than the Little Grebe and they spend a lot of their time diving and underwater. So not the easiest bird to find our watch. Well worth the trip though for a few views like this.
That's a real beauty.ReplyDelete
He or she has such lovely dark brown feathers almost like mohagany.ReplyDelete
Lovely little bird! We have Pied-billed Grebes here. Interesting birds, but not near as pretty as your Black-necked GrebeReplyDelete
Have a wonderful week!
Oh, they're wonderful...with that brown plumage they seem to have been carved from wood!ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing.

I love Grebes -- this is a beautiful new variety for me. One of my best ever birding experiences was seeing a parent pie-billed carrying a baby on its back! I need to look up to see if all grebes do that!ReplyDelete
Great shots of an interesting bird. Cheers DianeReplyDelete
I don't know that I've ever seen a grebe.ReplyDelete

Nice find. I don't have these around here, but do have the Pied-billed Grebe. He lurks in the edge of a pond and hides easily among the vegetation. Been watching for a baby on its back as Sallie mentioned.ReplyDelete
They are pretty birds!ReplyDelete
Funny little red eyes things aren't they?ReplyDelete
