A couple of people have inquired about the red-necked grebes and they did not disappoint today. About fifteen of them were swimming amongst the pilings in the rain in Glen Haven this morning and another 30 were a bit further out. The gulls seemed to view them as competition but the lone Bonaparte Gull in this photo seems unaffected. This April 30th sighting is the latest sighting in the past five years. Hopefully they will stay a few more days in May.
