Nature Through My Lens

A Lifer

Looking through a bunch of unedited photos this morning, I discovered this Clark’s Grebe on Chaplin Lake in Saskatchewan.  I had thought it was a Western Grebe, but it is in fact a Clark’s, which is the rarer of the two.    Colour me pleased!

  2. OOOPS! That should read ‘subtle’,not sublet. Oh well, still a great bird to add to your Life list.

    • Ruth, I read right through it! So you would have got away with sublet!
