I discovered this afternoon that I have what appears to be a breeding pair of Horned Grebes living in the pond across the street from my house. I had across gone across the street with the camera because I had seen a couple of Bufflehead ducks and wanted to get pictures of them. Instead I found the Grebes paddling around the pond. Today's sighting of these birds is a first for me so I don't have a lot of info share about them.
The Horned Grebe is a member of the grebe family of water birds. It is an excellent swimmer and diver, and pursues its fish prey underwater.
