Western Grebe - Midland

There have been a lot of rarities popping up throughout Ontario lately including the Thick-billed Murre, Crested Caracara, and the Western Grebe.  I decided not to chase the first two since they were too far for me and settled for the Western Grebe today since I had some extra time!

I made the scenic back roads drive from Fergus up to Midland on Georgian Bay in just around 2 hrs and I am glad I did! I saw the bird immediately after I stepped out of the car and had phenomenal views of this awesome species.  I was able to snap a few pictures for the record.
