Found and identified at least 4 Common Redpoll at Altrusa Park in Longview. This is the same general area that Russ Koppendrayer found them yesterday. My find was across from the beginning of the park. Black chins were my clue as them possibly being Common Redpolls. Red cap and rosy sides.
Clark's Grebe, winter plumage. Biggest noticeable characteristic was pumpkin orange bill. Eye at edge of black. The books I have don't show much difference in the eye position with regards to the black I'm winter plumage for both Western and Clark's. Flanks were perhaps paler, but hard to tell without a nearby Western to compare with. Found in the channel near the end of Fisher's Island on the Willow grove loop.
