WELL HELLO THERE BIG FOOT! RED-NECKED GREBE SPOTTED AT NILES POND

red-necked-grebe-niles-pond-gloucester-ma-1-copyright-kim-smithForaging around the perimeter of Niles Pond this morning was a charming Red-necked Grebe. I write charming because his feet are exquisitely enormous! As it dove for food, they were put to good use as a sort of paddling propellor. The bird spent much of the morning with its head half submerged and feet furiously working, vigorously hunting small fish and vegetation.red-necked-grebe-niles-pond-gloucester-ma-4-copyright-kim-smith

Niles Pond is a special place that provides habitat for myriad species of wildlife, birds especially. Its close proximity to the ocean, abundance of food, and clear fresh, gentle water draws beautiful creatures to our shores all year round.

The wide variety of events planned this month and next also include Suzanne Vega (loved her), several performances of the Nutcracker, A Rolling Stones show called “Satisfaction”, and two great comedians…Paul D’Angelo (on New Year’s Eve…such a fun idea) and Lenny Clarke.

The Larcom is quite the little gem in the community of Beverly and surrounding towns and I know I, for one, need to remember to check out the schedule every once in awhile to see what is happening.
