Eric Miller, just called to report that he is looking at the Eared Grebe. It has apparently moved closer to Ceaser's Bay, although further out as indicated by Eric who was viewing the subject via spotting scope.

>> 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.
