Catch of the day.

Went to the shorebird cell at Hillman Marsh to see what was around.
The closest birds were horned grebes. Several popped up with fish while we were there.

Podiceps auritus

Like most grebes, the small chicks of the Horned Grebe frequently ride on the backs of their swimming parents. The young ride between the wings on the parent's back, and may even go underwater with them during dives.
