Great Crested Grebe
We went to lunch in a restaurant on Lake Zurich in Wadenswil ... on our way Isabel was talking about a bird carrying her young on her back that she had seen earlier in the summer on the lake, but she didn't know what it was. Once we got to the lake there were ducks and swans and, of course, Coots but that was all. We went up on the deck of the boat where the restaurant was and were ordering lunch when I saw the Great Crested Grebe. We never get them on our lake so I was very excited and Isabel said that was the bird she had seen with the baby on it's back. He dove a few times and then disappeared ... but, oh what a beautiful bird.
The water in Lake Zurich is so clear, you can see to the bottom in most places. And, I have to say the water in Switzerland tastes wonderful. If our water was that good, I would drink it all of the time. So that is it for today ... Have a wonderful week, everyone :)
