And this is a northern redneck! The Redneck Grebe is native to Canada and Alaska, nesting in the spring near small ponds and sloughs. I’d never seen one before, but this guy was hanging out, brilliant in his mating plumage, at the Kerrywood Nature Centre in Red Deer last week. An excellent swimmer and diver, you can see how far back his legs are positioned…like a merganser or a loon. I’ll be watching for more of these guys.
