Horned grebes on Lake Dardanelle
  • Horned grebes on Lake Dardanelle

Not trying to turn the blog into a travelog, but chalk up our sparse posting this weekend to a) too much to do getting ready for Thanksgiving, b) Thanksgiving, c) being loaded down with too much food to think straight, d) hiking it off and e) heading up to Lake Dardanelle to see two birds that ought to be out West somewhere, Western grebes, and regular winter visitors (but still great to see) horned grebes (horned grebes in pix above, by birder Kenny Nations; click to enlarge. Sorry, no pix of Westerns). Thanks to keen-eyed birder friends on the lake, we got to see these birds, and you all had a lazy blog.

Promise to do better tomorrow. Tonight's main distraction: "Homeland."
