Juvenile of this rare species for Kansas, seen by itself on one of the smaller marshes about mid way along drive and photographed, flew off to south over open water and I didn't get a good look at it in flight, initially wasn't sure of identification but several reviewers have confirmed, bill thicker and also grayer backed than Red-necked and bit of tan on neck indicates juvenile
