Bird of the Day: Eared Grebe

We actually spotted this creature some weeks ago, and I forgot to post it. So here it is in all its wondrousness to take your mind off the mundane.

I am realizing more and more that I am a bird geek. I want a better camera. Fancy binoculars. A trip meant for bird watching.

True confessions: I even like sparrows.

Secret: Pelicans blow my mind. If a pelican flies overhead when, let's say, you are walking with me on the beach, you will have to repeat what you just said.

Yours truly,

Very geeky bird lover

P.S. A snowy egret flew right in front of me today as I was driving. My life flashed in front of my eyes. Well. Maybe not. But my brain said egretegretegret!!!

Remember the blue heron(s)

There is something that happens as we get older which causes us to really appreciate birds. I don't know what it is but it's a real, true thing.
That grebe is a gorgeous bird.

You just made me realize that with all our big dogs gone, the yearly visit to our place by the snowy egrets will be less stressfull for the birds. :)

That is quite a bird. And I had to laugh at Ms. Moon's comment. I have noticed the same and I have also realized that I'm not quite as old as ya'll and don't have quite the interest, yet, in birds, but I'm grateful you're paving the way. (And I do appreciate the beauty of your photo of the bird, I do.) :)
