Subject: [KlamathBasinBirdNews] Colony of nesting Eared Grebes on Agency Lake south of Wood River Wetland.
There is a colony of Eared Grebes actively building floating nests in the
shallows of Agency Lake about 0.9 mile south of the entrance of Wood River
Wetland (at the opening of Mallard Bay). I counted at least 20 active nests
there today. They are visible from Modoc Point Rd. across from the corner of
East Lake Rd. and Modoc Point Rd where there is a gated entrance to a
private park (Oregon Shores Unit 1, Private Marina). There is only enough
room for about two vehicles in front of the gate; do not block the gate. The
colony is well over a hundred yards offshore so photography is tough. A
spotting scope is best to see how pairs of the birds push together the
submerged vegetation to form floating platforms.

Try this link on Google Maps for the exact location:'05.8%22N+121%C2%B055'53.3%22W/@

Or, plug these coordinates into whatever you prefer: 42.568275, -121.931481

Interesting behavior and perhaps a new sight to many,
