Winter Horned Grebe

Horned Grebes are one of those birds that I only see in the wintertime, except once I did get a 4 second glimpse of one in breeding plumage. It was in between the lobster boats tied up on Gloucester Harbor. It took one look at me and dove. Then I never saw it again!

This winter Horned Grebe was diving near Motif #1 in Rockport.

Great close pictures! I was up to Georgian Bay yesterday, but it was frozen over as far as the eye could see.

Great shots Steve. Aside from the Great-crested and Little Grebe which are common, we occasionally get the Black-necked Grebe which in its winter plumage looks a lot like this one.
