Horned Grebes | Grèbes esclavons | Podiceps auritus: As I posted a few days ago, I was able to see three Horned Grebes fairly closeup from Jericho Beach. The two individuals on the right are in full breeding plumage, while the one on the left is clearly still transitioning from its non-breeding plumage.
I photographed three individuals (including this one) as they were drifting quit close to Jericho Beach in Vancouver (British Columbia), Canada. Taken April 16, 2016, with a handheld Nikon D5200 and AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR (ISO 400 | 500mm | f/6.3 | 1/1600, cropped for composition). Not baited, called in or set up.
