Taken 2-26-2021 in the afternoon at Puddingstone Lake in San Dimas, CA.

There were 3 or 4 Grebes in this cove.  A couple of them were Western Grebes (like the first photo).  Then there was the one in the second photo.  I never did see its bill, but is it a Clark's Grebe?

I have a Question if you don't mind. In the first picture, the eye is in the black. In the second picture, the eye is under the black, so why aren't they different birds? Thanks 🙂

Why? The eye looks like it’s in the black to me.

That’s the WEGR mentioned in poster’s text: “like the first photo.”

Given the view in the 2nd pic, CLGR seems indicated, given the eye well below the black cap and the back corner of the meeting of white and black is strongly angled.

They are different birds.  Read the entire first post again, please.
