Horned Grebe

My Saturday Bird this week is the Horned Grebe (Podiceps auritus).

Known as the Slavonian Grebe in Europe it is a small member of the Grebe family. The global population has declined by 30% over the past 30 years while the North American population is down 79% and it is now considered a vulnerable species by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature.

This individual was photographed on a cattle watering hole in Saskatchewan, Canada in spring. The reflections on the water are a mixture of corral fence and stacked straw bales.

CMMC: Silver or Gold
