Christmas Grebes


There were a dozen or so Black Necked Grebes around christmas in the port at Kamiiso.............




One of my fave birds even in winter plumage.............



They were catching little fish..................


Due a grey colourless background their red eyes stand out even more.

  1. Those red eyes really stand out when their in eclipse plumage and the background is muted like that.
