Red-necked Grebe

The Red-necked Grebe is a common visitor in the summers to the northern reaches of North America where it is observed in bright colors. The breeding season brings out aggressive behavior and lots of vocalisation whereas in the winter months it is plainly colored and very quiet. Like other Grebes it ingests some of its own feathers, likely to help filter indigestible bones in its stomach. For some unknown reason it will only fly over land at night but will navigate along waterways during daylight hours.
