Out For A Swim!

Horned Grebe

F/6.3, 1/1000, ISO 400.

Horned Grebe

Day 123 / 365

Perfect day for a swim and dive, but not for me, the water is still too cold.     🙂

Interesting Fact: The Horned Grebe regularly eats some of its own feathers, enough that its stomach usually contains a matted plug of them. This plug may function as a filter or may hold fish bones in the stomach until they can be digested. The parents even feed feathers to their chicks to get the plug started early.  ( http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Horned_Grebe/lifehistory )

    • You are welcome, I am truly happy that I can share that information with you. I appreciate you stopping by and checking out my work. 🙂

  1. I’m so glad I found this today! Some yo-yo has completely taken over my WordPress Reader and inundated it with stupid sports stories in which I have no interest whatsoever. (Pakistani cricket!) You wouldn’t happen to know how I can get rid of him, would you?

  2. I don’t know what is more fascinating -Your fabulous shots or the interesting trivia that goes with it ! Am enjoying browsing through. Fantastic blog !
