A young horned grebe chick opted to ride around on mom's back for awhile. So far this is the only chick I have seen on the dugout in the back yard. There were at least three eggs on the nest so it could be that there will be more to come although it is already getting late in the season for them.

    What fun for this young one to hitch a ride on the back of its obliging Mom..Very sweet and cute capture....I hope there will be more eggs to hatch..I keep waiting to see some little baby wrens and saw evidence of broken tiny blue shells on the ground underneath the bird house but not sure if a predator ate the egg or if one of the eggs had hatched...The wrens still hang around their house so there must be signs of life there.
