Grebe ID


Recommended Posts

This grebe was photographed at Lake Hodges in So. Ca. during Feb 2018.  The common grebes seen there are Western, Clark's, and Pied-bill.  The red eye eliminates Pied-bill.  It does not appear to be Western or Clark's either, unless there is a juvenile version of them that looks like the photo.  Can anyone give a positive ID?

Thanks for the ID's.  I was reluctant to conclude eared grebe since I have been going to Lake Hodges for years and have never before seen one.  We are in range for non-breeding eared grebes and it does fit the ID well.
