How to Identify?
The bird is generally brown to dark grey and has a light grey short but strong beak with a black ring during the breeding season.
We combine physical characterics and behavior patterns with location and seasonal aspects to identify species.
Where & When to Spot?
During spring, summer and autumn in ponds diving for food or hidden within the vegetation. I have seen this species in different parks with a larger pond.
With each photo, we store date and geo-location providing us data about location and season of observation. We also use a tracking utility to save observations in the field when there was no opportunity to take a good shot.
Anything to add, to correct?
