grebe sp.

Likely Horned Grebes based on size, but lighting was poor and could only see silhouette as they flew off in the distance.

This is my first Lehigh County record for this bird. Had it not flown up I would have never known it was there. I found it on the "island" that juts into the lake across from the main parking lot. FOY!

I don't find this number to be unusual given the amount of time and area covered. They are seen all over Leaser Lake and this is probably a somewhat conservative #.

Finely streaked breast and buffy wash on breast. At one point I had this bird and a Fox Sparrow in my binoculars at the same time. Not too shabby. I think this is my first Lehigh Co. record for this bird as well. FOY.

In the open fields on Ontelaunee (sic?) Rd. leading to Leaser Lake. They are there every year.
