As others have said, it's a horned grebe. It isn't a duck at all.

Thanks - guess that is why I didn't find it. [/quote]

The Horned and Slavonian Grebe are the same bird (Podiceps auritus) just to help a little more  ;)
I think the American continent call it the Horned whereas the European's call it a Slavonian, hope this helps you with your bird ID studies.

Thanks.  I'm reading about the Grebe right now.



I love these context shots. The pheasant in particularly has great visual power.

Thank you much for the compliment.

Can someone help me ID this diving duck?  I can't seem to find it in Sibley's or online.  Thanks.
As others have said, it's a horned grebe. It isn't a duck at all.
To clarify, Horned grebe and Slavonian grebe are two names for the same bird.

Ah dpc, a Coot, one of this planet's most beautiful birds.  We call them mud hens but none have shown up at my pond yet! ;)

Well, I'll give you that the adults are fairly attractive creatures but have you ever seen anything uglier than the chicks?

Beautiful shots Eldar and Hank.

Thanks, 2n10!

A bird I have been after for years - so common and yet so skittish - the (European) goldfinch! Pleased with this :)

1000mm, f/10.

That's a cool bird, nicely captured.

Thanks - guess that is why I didn't find it.  I am trying to learn more about birds all the time and enjoy bird photography.  Here are a few others from this spring, including an  Great Horned Owl, American Kestrel, and a pheasant.

I like the second Great Horned Owl shot. It almost seems as if the tree is full of owl ears  ;D The pheasant in the field is great composition.
