Willoughby got it right (of course). This is a scan of a slide from Masai Mara, Kenya. I had hoped to see the European Roller in Sicily, but no dice.

Met a group of birders in Bodega bay. They said they had seen a Red Necked Grebe near where we were. I think this is the bird.

Kasilof Beach today, 10/26, incoming tide. It was chilly, around 35 degrees. I saw mallards in two groups of about 30 males with a few females scattered in, scaup and this lone surf scoter.

John,

I'd say that looks like a Horned Grebe in its confusing transition plumage. Note the white tip on the bill.

Here is what a Red-necked Grebe might look like now - stouter,slightly downcurved, yellow-based bill and different head shape:

How about juvenile Harris's Hawk? I'm going on the rufous in the wings and white undertail.
