- Checklist: https://ebird.org/checklist/S71726244
- Comments: "Very surprised to see this bird in July, although this is a
great stretch of coast for them in other seasons, and plenty of scoters and
Western Grebes seem to spend the summer here on a regular basis. I wonder
if it's a non-breeding bird or one that came back to sea early after an
aborted nesting attempt? The plumage was essentially like a full alternate
Red-neck but the red was a bit paler/duller/washed out. ... Largish grebe,
at least the size of the Pigeon Guillemot it was near, but stockier and
shorter-necked than a Western Grebe. Bill fairly long and larger than a
Horned's would be. Large clear white cheek patch contrasting with dark
crown and maroon upper neck. Entire neck was dull rust-maroon-red, but a
bit more washed-out than a full breeding bird usually shows. Back dark;
sides slightly less dark."
