There is currently an Eared Grebe in Gravesend Bay. It is adjacent to the southernmost parking area along the eastbound Belt Parkway, just before the Bay Parkway exit (Exit 5). You can only access this parking area from the eastbound Belt, but you can park at nearby Ceaser's Bay or in the muni meter lot at the end of Bay Parkway coming from either direction.
The bird is close to shore and very actively diving, staying up for ~10 seconds each time, but overall being very cooperative.
