The male horned grebe returned this May to the pond. Usually, in a few days his mate would join him. That didn`t happen this year. As shown here, he was clearly on watch for her arrival.. she was the sole reason for him being here himself. After more than two weeks of waiting he left and I haven`t seen him since. He would likely have joined others of his kind who nest on smaller lakes or swamps in the area.
