I was flipping back and forth between this and a horned grebe pic, and I was like, they look Identical... but then I saw your comment and noticed that you just have a different name for it... I was like.. That makes sense..  Facepalm (For my goofiness) but either way, great shot!!  :D  I love these birds..  Some of my friends from my Environmental Science class called it the Devil Bird.  Ha ha ha.

Don't discriminate - if you're gonna let bluethroats in your garden, the grebes should be allowed too!

Great photo, I love this shot. This is a very dressy bird. Not many can carry off orange.:) And the red eyes don't usually look so attractive.

Yes, very stunning. I have never seen one, but that makes sense, because they don't migrate to my country.:)

Canada, What about North America? Do they ever show up there? If so maybe I have a chance to photograph one.:)

Not heard of them in North America but I don't know for sure! I guess it is possible!

Fluffy fluffy fluffy fluffy

Sorry, I couldn't resist! The way you captured the waves swelling around it is perfect! Did you actually put the camera at water level? I also like how you captured the droplets of water on its flank, very clear.

I lay at the edge of the bank under a bush and waited for it to approach - took a couple of hours and a very stiff neck ! Thanks again Jade
