Calm Water And Birds | Red-Necked Grebe | New York
When you go out looking for birds to photograph during migration season its possible to see a species of bird once and never see it again.
I love my favorite local birding spot for this.
I can see all the typical birds from our area. Then I can see more usual migratory birds. And if I am lucky I can see a bird that is not as typically found in our area during migration.
This is the case with the Red-Necked Grebe.
I saw a Red-Necked Grebe for the first time on April 12th of 2015. And the last time I saw a Red-Necked Grebe was on April 15th of 2015.
Now in 2021 I have never seen a Red-Necked Grebe since.
But thanks to our little local stopover spot for migration I had the opportunity to see this bird at least one time.
I always go back every year hoping to see one again though.
