A Recent Passerby

Today’s post features another recent visitor to the Lake of the Ozarks (MO) … a Horned Grebe (thanks Tom/Lindsay, for ID assistance!).

While working outside, I spotted this single Horned Grebe that was fishing in the lake. I never saw him catch any fish, but he was quite spectacular to watch!
