Comments

Somewhat windy at the beginning, becoming very windy at the end. There was a large overnight push, mostly passerines, which was noted across the island (lots of kinglets, warblers, and sparrows in the brush). Sparrow numbers are likely undercounts.

  14. Horned/Eared Grebe

    Number observed: 1

    Comments: Probable Eared Grebe in Cell 6. Either would be flagged, but my photos are terrible. I was doing some recounts of the waterfowl in the northern portion of the cell when a grebe swam through my scope view. The GISS was of an Eared, particularly due to the peaked crown. I attempted photos, but the bird was moving a lot and diving; I would estimate it spent 2/3 of the time underwater. By the time I found it again in the scope and then got the camera focused in the general area, it would be underwater again. The wind shaking the camera did not help either. Per Sibley, Eared is more likely to winter in shallow water whereas Horned prefers deeper/ocean water, and this bird was in the center of a shallow pond.
