The bird I previously identified as a Least Grebe at Lake Carl Blackwell is actually a very small (and early hatching) juvenile Pied-billed Grebe. I was thrown by the bird's extremely small size, short neck, and tiny bill, as well as what seems like a very early date for a recently hatched pied-billed. My apologies for the false alarm... and it sounds like at least one group may have headed up to Stillwater so I apologize if the previous retraction was not clear or fast enough!
Some photos of the bird can be found embedded in the eBird checklist below:
