Thanks for your nice list and especially photos of the Diamond Lake trip. I remember a similar trip with you, and congratulations for doing it again. What a nice photo of the non-breeding Clark’s Grebe, with yellow bill. That’s a big help distinguishing from Western. Thanks for sharing with those of us who didn’t go. Mikeal
