Western Grebe

Copyright Barbara Samuelson 2003

Western Grebe (Aechmophorus occidentalis) of the Family Podicipedidae have lobed toes that make them strong swimmers. The nest in reeds along broad freshwater lakes. Call is a loud two-note kreek-kreek. They can, with some difficulty be distinguished from Clark's Grebe mainly by the black cap extending to include the eyes. The bill is supposedly more greenish than that of the Clark's.
