Two of more than 40 horned grebes we saw Oct 26 while boating on Rondeau Bay..
We tend to see them during spring and fall.

Podiceps auritus
A sleeping or resting Horned Grebe puts its neck on its back with its head off to one side and facing forward. It keeps one foot tucked up under a wing and uses the other one to maneuver in the water. Having one foot up under a wing makes it float with one "high" side and one "low" side.
