Weekly Photo Challenge:Culture

horned grebeFriends, birders have a culture that includes an addiction to anything birdy, some list birds, watch birds, feed birds and photograph birds.  and some like me sit by the marshes waiting for a bird to just show up, this morning i went to see if I could find the loons that i had seen yesterday, but the only bird present in the fishing hole was this tiny grebe, I thought at first that it was one of hundreds of Pied billed grebes that are always around and almost drove past, but just for giggles i put my binocs on it and shreeked for joy,  I have never seen the horned grebe up close, but here he is in all his breeding finery, I love his yellow earmuffs,  enjoy, I sure did, til Tomorrow MJ
