All right, everyone, I have just discovered that I am seriously taking leave of my senses.  Who in their right MINDS would  go outside in the freezing temperatures in heaven-only-knows-what wind chill in order to get these pictures for you?  A darn serious birder or a completely daft fool.  In any event, here they are, so enjoy.  By the way, this is the first time that I have ever seen the Eared Grebe and the Red-breasted Merganser.
