Occasional Pa Canadian Wildlife Service. - Hurt, V. Mineraalsete maavarade kasutarnine. Hiiumaa looduse kaitsest. A common grebe of freshwater lakes in the west. Gregarious at all seasons; nests in dense colonies, sometimes congregates in huge numbers on lakes during migration and winter. Probably as an adaptation to life in the arid west, it is flexible in distribution, quickly taking advantage of temporary or man-made new bodies of water.

    Horned Grebe Podiceps auritus. The Horned Grebe is very striking in breeding plumage, having a horned look because of tufts of feathers above and behind the eyes, which are only present on this grebe during the breeding season. The nonbreeding version of the Horned Grebe is shown below, which is what's most likely to always be seen in Arizona.   Horned Grebe – Podiceps auritus, are a winter visitor to my area in southeastern New England. We find them along the shore actively feeding. Horned Grebes breed mainly in Canada and Alaska. In the summer, I saw them around Churchill, Manitoba. They are extremely colorful in the summer with a black head and Brown puffy [ ].

    Constructed wetlands may add habitat to the landscape when many natural sites have been destroyed or degraded. Since the s, agricultural expansion in western Canada, and especially in Alberta, has resulted in wetland degradation and destruction, and accompanying declines in populations of breeding . Neotropical Birds has been integrated into the new Birds of the World, a powerful research database offering species accounts for every species on earth. While Birds of the World is a subscription service, we remain committed to offering this content to Neotropical Birds contributors and to those unable to pay for it through our scholarship program.

of horned grebe Podiceps auritus nests. In this study, we showed that humans can affect bird breeding and nesting activity both positively and negatively. The wastewater treatment ponds at Khon Kaen University provided a suitable habitat to attract the grebes, as measured by nest construction and breeding success.

Similarly, Tucakov. Horned grebes (Podiceps auritus) closely resemble eared grebes (Podiceps nigricollis) – another “pair” of look-alike birds that are so difficult to identify. Recently I observed a solitary horned grebe on the Tule River (Shasta County CA).

Since the breeding plumage of both male and female horned grebes look the same, I could not tell the sex of this lone duck. The Horned Grebe is a small grebe with a straight bill, thick neck, and squarish head. In breeding plumage, Horned Grebes have rufous necks and bellies, gray backs, and black heads with a solid yellow patch from each eye to the back of the head.

Juveniles are gray-buff, with the lower half of. Few detailed descriptions of the Horned Grebe’s breeding habitat are available. In general, it selects small freshwater wetlands (less than 10 hectares) with extensive beds of emergent vegetation (Figure 3).

Hemi-marshes with open water areas amid dense beds of cattails, rushes, and sedges are preferred (Stedman ). The horned grebe is often confused with the black-necked grebe, which is similar in size and colouring but differentiates by a steeper forehead, a more slender bill and a fluffier rump.

Ottawa, Ont.: Canadian. In breeding plumage, body dark, with rufous neck and flanks; head blackish, with conspicuous buff ear tufts. In winter, upperparts dark; chin and foreneck white. The most common saltwater grebe. Horned Grebe (Podiceps auritus) is known in many parts of the world as Slavonian Grebe, although it is interesting to note that when that name was applied in the 19th Century in England it was spelled 'Sclavonian', replacing the original - and more appropriate - English name 'Horned Dabchick'.(The Grebes (), Fjeldsa, J., Oxford University Press).

The breeding ecology of the Horned Grebe Podiceps auritus was investigated on a km2 study area near Yellowknife, Northwest Territories (62°27'N, °22'W).

Population size and productivity. Horned grebes begin breeding when they are 1 year old, and usually raise one brood per year.

Pairs form in the winter or spring, and may breed together for more than one season. Like other grebes, horned grebes display complex courtship rituals that involve many different ceremonies and displays.

It looks similar to the black-necked grebe in winter but has whiter cheeks which almost meet at the back of the neck. Due to its small breeding population it is a Red List species. In the breeding season, they mate at freshwater lakes and ponds, but some species spend their non-breeding season along seacoasts.
