Oak Beach: Eared Grebe
So,,,there were new reports of the continuing Eared Grebe at Oak Beach by the NW corner of that area. I figured it was the only potential life bird in the local area so I gave it another shot. I've tried many times looking for Eared Grebes at this spot but today it finally paid off. I walked up to Sore Thumb (the inlet) and only saw 2 Horned Grebes but on the way back right where I started I saw another grebe and could tell it was FINALLY the Eared Grebe. I watched it a bit and got good looks at it and it even was snacking on a young eel.
