I may have gotten over-excited when spotting this bird in the field. It may not be a Least Grebe, as it is dark-eyed and has a bill that looks too thick. However, it is also strange for a pied-billed grebe (seemed too small, too short-necked and too small-billed for a "normal" Pied-billed Grebe, even a juvenile). The jury is still out, but probably don't hop in your cars to drive to Stillwater just yet! I guess it could be a micro-sized/aberrant pied-billed grebe. If you'd like, please check out the photo on the OOS page and provide insight.
