I was able to check E. L. Huie LAF today. Since I had to go to work I could only spend about ten minutes birding. I was pleased to find three EARED GREBES in the big south pond. There may have been more, but I doubt there were more than four. They spent most of there time underwater, but I only saw three above water at any one point. There was also one HORNED GREBE in the pump station pond. I thought I saw a female Redhead also, but I didn't have time to verify it. I snapped a few photos of the grebes and will put them on my website if I have time.
Just a note, I have been seeing Horned Grebes around lately with patterns almost identical to Eared Grebes. However, structure, shape, and proportions revealed them really to be Horns in transitional molt. They can be a bit confusing at times.
