The last couple of days there has been a Horned Grebe in stunning full breeding plumage. Seeing this bird made me realize that previously I had only seen this species in transition plumage. This individual has been hanging out near shore along Peninsula Dr. just before it ends at the parking lot for Vincent park. The Black Oystercatchers have been very active and visible along the rocky "shore" in the same area as the grebe.
