I’m slowly learning all the different birds here in Wisconsin, and can now name several on sight, including the chickadee, dark-eyed junco and the bald eagle (saw one flying up our road!). But I was chuffed to see what looked very much like a grebe on Lake Michigan today.
That’s it, that little brown blob on the right. What does forum wisdom say? Grebe or no grebe? It had a very long, slender beak, which you can’t really see in this photo at all. And it definitely wasn’t a duck!
