Western Grebe: Ottawa #228

I had missed a Western Grebe last year and when I heard about this bird I just had to run out and see it.  Unlike last year, after about 10 minutes scanning,  I was lucky enough to get it in my binoculars

Bird #228 on my Ottawa list, a great find.  Thanks for the call my friend.

Below I have the crappy photo I took today of the Western Grebe, in bad lighting and at great distance.  #2 is an image of a Western Grebe in lovely light and below that a close relative the Clark’s Grebe, for comparison.

Thanks for looking…Looks like next year I can resume my Birdquest, I can now get travel insurance…..Yee Haaa
