Nesting Red-necked Grebe

~ While visiting Elk Island in Alberta last week, I found a pair of nesting Red-necked Grebes. This female may well have been still incubating eggs, although she had at least one hatchling under her feathers. The male was swimming in the lake nearby the nest. The yellow flowers in the background are Indian Pond Lilies.
