Australasian Grebe in Lake Killarney Takaka

Postby kengeorge » Thu Jun 28, 2018 4:30 pm

Just got back from Queensland, go to town to check out how the resident dabchick is doing in Lake Killarney in the middle of Takaka (Golden Bay) township, and the first thing that swims into view when I lift my binos up to look for the dabchick is this Australasian Grebe...... First time I've seen one in Golden Bay, I don't know how abundant they are generally.
