About 5 weeks ago I came down hard on my right foot and jammed my knee. Off it for three weeks, then I catch a whopper of a cold a week ago... Dropped Deb at the store and headed to Montezuma.
This nest is unique in that it has been occupied by two males and one female for several years. It looks like the two males are sitting there today, which is unusual for this time of year for them to be at the nests.

I believe this is a Red Necked Grebe, Art? Was on the wrong side of the bird for the light.

Felt good to get out. Missed out on seeing the Sand Hills. There were a lot of birds on the Main Pool and I have more pictures to work on.
