Red-necked Grebes

Another interior aquatic bird that comes to the coast in winter, wearing its drab winter colours.
Last winter, when these were taken, I saw more of these Grebes off the Westview wharf
than any previous year, whatever that may be worth. This year's birds have already
arrived, I spotted some 2 weeks ago.

Like Loons and other diving birds their legs are set so far back that they're ungainly on land.

  1. I can't be positive, but I think a Western Grebe has been visiting the Hole in the Wall lately. - Margy
