Sunday Surprise!

I’m used to seeing the Pied-billed grebes at Nisqually and I just love them. This morning after breakfast, we walked Yoda along Ruston Way and I was lucky enough to see this pair of Horned grebes just off of one of the docks.

A great surprise!

  1. These shots are beautiful. Looks like the grebes fell into some wet paint. I’ve never seen such close shots of them and the colours are wonderful.

    • So surprising to see them so close to the dock in Commencement Bay. When they are in breeding plumage they are gorgeous. I’ll try to go back and look for them!

    • Great question. I *believe* it is a yellow patch on the head. The non-breeding adults have just a faint patch. The eared grebe is similar, but I think I’m guessing correctly. I’ll post on my birder page to verify.

You know I'd love to hear from you !
