Joan and I birded Spreckles Lake and North Lake this morning. The recently reported geese were on Spreckles L. There were 4 Greater White-fronted Geese and 1 Snow Goose, 18 Canada Geese and a single Ross's Goose. No grebe there. We headed west to North Lake where we saw most of the usual suspects including a Nuttall's Woodpecker. At the north end of the lake we were looking for one of the diving Buffleheads when what should appear but the Red-necked Grebe. I assume it's the same bird seen by many others. It is in 1st winter plumage. There was nothing else of real interest.
