A Couple Foggy Birds

Recommended Posts

NW Washington, 10/27/18, thanks. 

I'd like this to be an Eared Grebe but Horned is much more likely here. White under the chin and on the neck match my guide for Eared. Not a lot to work with with these pics, I know.

Eared Grebe is correct.  Note the culmen quite straight, almost appearing a bit upturned.  A good field mark for separating Eared and Horned.  The culmen of a Horned would be curving downward toward the tip, and the black/white border across the cheek quite distinct in comparison to Eared.
