We just got back from a trip to the east end of Rainy Lake where I was able to get a few shots of a Horned Grebe. This time of year they look nothing like they do in spring and I confess I had to get the field guide out to be sure of what it was, as I don't see them very often.

Very nice shots-hard to believe this is the same flashy bird seen in the spring.

Thank you kindly. Yes, this one had me reaching for Sibley.

Great shots in what appears to be a challenging light condition, Al.

Thanks, Rog. It came out of the reeds at then end of a small bay we were fishing and the backshore was full of tall dark pines that made the water very dark. The bird was well illuminated though, fortunately.
