April 19, 2013: Grebes

On this gusty Friday I found 1 Horned Grebe (left) and 6 Eared Grebes (right) amongst the American Coots.  All but 3 of the Eared Grebes were in full breeding plumage.  Note the similarities between the two species.  The Horned Grebe has a thicker bill, fuller golden "horns", and a chestnut foreneck. 4/19/13 (Wolf.
