Horned Grebe at Marine Park in Tacoma

Horned Grebe
Originally uploaded by M.B.Brown

It was a gray Sunday, but a pair of very cooperative Horned Grebes led to this photo. The two were foraging fairly close together. One had started its transition to breeding plumage, this one still in winter plumage.

As I was leaving, a yellow lab drove them farther out from shore as it swam toward them. I don’t know what the rules are at Marine Park, but I suspect it’s not meant to be an off-leash area!
