Red-necked Grebe (Podiceps grisegena) (1)
- Reported Sep 07, 2020 07:12 by Brodie Cass Talbott
- Broughton Beach, Multnomah, Oregon
- Map:
http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&t=p&z=13&<q...>,-122.6152539&<ll...>,-122.6152539
- Checklist: https://ebird.org/checklist/S73304225
- Comments: "I spotted this bird, rather distantly, on the river in my
scope just as it flew. At first I assumed it was a Common Loon (as that
would be the most likely bird to fit the general profile), as it was dark
on top, light on bottom, and had a very low slung head in flight. The low
slung head struck me as a little excessive for COLO, and the two other
things that stuck out were that the flight seemed labored, and, most
prominently, there was a white patch in the secondaries, reminiscent of
COME, but with the low head and feet noticeably protruding beyond tail. I
wasn't until I got home that I checked and confirmed the wing pattern for
RNGR. Perhaps there is a better explanation for this bird, but not one that
I am aware of."
