Yesterday I reported having seen 2 RN Grebes in Stonington. Just a quick update on one of them which I reported as a grebe with fading breeding plumage.
I did some research this morn and found out that what I saw was a juvenile and not an adult, although Sibley's Guide says the RN Grebe retains juv plumage only until October, but this one I guess is a late bloomer. it was a beautiful bird with those dark cheek stripes still quite evident and still lots of rufous in neck area.
