Horned Grebe at Grant Park in Milwaukee Wisconsin on March 21, 2017
One of my last stops birding along the lakefront in Milwaukee today I spotted at Horned Grebe. This adult bird in non-breeding plumage did more resting than diving for food early afternoon while I was there. The rest of the lakefront was pretty quiet. Lakeshore State Park had about 100 winter ducks still hanging around. Images were taken on March 21, 2017.
Binomial name: Podiceps auritus
Size: 14” long, 18” wing span
Weight: 1 lb.
Resting but always watching…
On the move…
