Slavonian Grebe

I recently took a trip up to Barrow Lodge near Blackburn, with my friend Steve, to check out a Salvonian grebe that had been staying there these past few weeks. The combination of a small pond and fairly unshy bird made getting some photographs relatively straight foward. Some of the antics of this little bird were very amusing, particulalry when it sits bolt upright in the water, half submerged while still moving around almost gives it the appearance of a tiny penguin.

Pretty little bird. A bit different from the grebes I see around here. (I'm in Connecticut in the States)
