The end of March is when we usually see the migrating birds passing through on their long journey northwards.  I’m back to walking Lake Garda and found a new “tourist” visiting.  I didn’t know the name of this aquatic bird until today – I’d never seen them around our part of the world and they are very hard to photograph (there were several, but they tend to stay out of range of people so with my Olympus this was the best I could do) … they look like sharp billed ducks at a distance, and then they flare their lovely head feathers and then, one can no longer mistake them for ducks! Here’s a cool video from the YouTube:


And here’s another haiga dedicated to the crested grebe:

    • I was so excited to see the first one on Saturday and then a group yesterday. They’ll be gone pretty soon, the interesting thing is that they don’t usually lay over here. Do you think they’ve got weather wisdom .. the north is still under snow.

  1. Love your haiga, cara. And that video is so adorable and elegant! It looks like they keep checking to see if anyone is watching…reminds me when I was dating, kept checking to see when GrandMaman would walk in the livvng room 😉
