Horned Grebe (Podiceps auritus)

Tracking this little bird, a Horned Grebe (Podiceps auritus), down has been a long process because he usually likes to swim and dive far offshore where he is visible but only just. Every day I would go down to the shore and snap a few photos of him but he was never close enough to show the details needed for a clear identification. Until a couple of days ago, that is. There he was, almost spitting distance from the shore, so I hope you enjoy seeing him up close as much as I did.

Very nice shot with the ripples in the water and the reflections.

Good shot!

I'm not sure if they're around here....
