Fishing part 2

Fishing is a big pastime at this park.  This grebe was actively fishing near the shore, and I enjoyed watching him.

Eared Grebe

When I looked at my photos later I realized that he showed black all over.
I decided to try the Picasa program to edit the photo and try to bring out his colors.

I don't like the slightly blurred outlines of the bird, but at least one can see the colors as the actually exist on the bird!
He was continuously diving to get his supper, and then he would float for a few seconds and repeat the dive!  


  1. Hi Hazel, My dad and i use to go bird watching. We had to stop when my mum needed constant care and now my dad isn't up to the walking.

  2. I've never seen one of those around here! Very cool!
