Horned Grebes at Charlotte Town Beach

By josh • Nature, Wildlife • 14 Nov 2012

Prior to this week I’m pretty sure my high count for horned grebes in Vermont was two.  On Veteran’s Day I saw no fewer than eleven- eight at Charlotte Town Beach and three more at Shelburne Town Beach on the way home.

At Charlotte Town Beach a pair came close enough for a few photos.  Most of them were lousy (I guess I forgot how to shoot with adequate light!), but this one’s not bad given the distance:
