010-01-2009 Western Grebe

First state record

Western Grebe — near Hustons Mill, Cumberland County; February 14, 2009. Photos by Dale Bicksler. This bird was found by Barry & Jennifer Horton. In addition to the slender white neck, these photos show the black cap extending down below the eye and the greenish-yellow bill that make this a Western and rule out the similar-looking Clark’s Grebe.

Western Grebe — near Hustons Mill, Cumberland County; February 16, 2009. Photos by Bob Moul. In addition to the slender white neck, the following two photos nicely show the black cap extending down below the eye and the greenish-yellow bill that make this a Western and rule out the similar-looking Clark’s Grebe. Note the nice comparison between the Western Grebe and the Red-necked Grebe on the left. Note the wide, dark strip down the back of the neck that denotes a Western Grebe. Here the bird has its wings extended.
