Back Necked Grebe's

These Black Necked grebes were the surprise birds of the trip we normally get one wintering here but four  together was quite unusual . All together we saw three 1st winter drake Eider's, three Spoonbills . four Black Necked Grebes . Seven Grey Plovers & Three Great Northern Divers.

  1. Hi Dude,

    The adult is unmistakable in summer with a black head and neck and yellow ear tufts. In winter, this small grebe is white with a poorly defined black cap, which distinguishes it from the crisper-looking Slavonian Grebe. Thanks a lot......
