Western Grebe

This is a baby / young Western Grebe. Who look identical to Clark's Grebe! They're very hard to tell the difference but the Western usually has the black cap go upon and over the red eye when clark's black cap stops above the eye.

This is at Salt Lake. Half - 5/6's the pond is forzen so its kinda cool to see water and waterfowl!


  1. Love that first shot!

  2. Looks like an Eared Grebe to me. If the pond was frozen than it's also the wrong time of the year for young birds to be swimming around as the adult don't nest until at least the spring.
