Wednesday Wings: Red-necked Grebes

Posted by Dan Arndt

Red-necked Grebes are in my opinion the most photogenic of their family, and in the right conditions of light, cover, and opportunity, I have been able to get quite close to them a few times lately.

These photos were taken this past weekend on the Glenmore Reservoir this past week, and at Frank Lake, Carburn Park, and Bridlewood Wetlands the week before.

Enjoy.

  2. Your pictures are so good they made my teeth water ! I love the ones with the still reflection – I saw one of these on the Bow when I walked in Bowmont park a few weeks ago. The Elvis of the bird world!

  3. Dan would it be possible get contact details from you to discuss which camera you are using for digiscoping please?

    Thanks,
