Don’t forget to check out my latest West Coast Beat Write post over at 10000 Birds.  It’s all about Western Grebes and their breeding behavior.  It includes a very cool video of a mating pair of  Clark’s Grebes as well!

Hi there – is that a digiscope shot – I can never get that close to grebes – I think that they are a really difficult bird to get close to.

Splendid shot.

@Stewart yes, this is a digiscoped shot. One thing I really like about digiscoping is that I can get real close without disturbing the birds and changing their behavior. This is a full frame shot I took from a bridge as the grebe swam toward me in curiosity!
