Could I get a confirm for this non-breeding Horned Grebe?    I would not be distinguish this from an Eared Grebe if it were not from looking at the ebird choices and only having Horned Grebe (or Pied which it's not) as an option.    This Grebe was seen in NJ in March in my first year of actively birding,  and I thought I'd get all sorts of shots as clear as this.   Was I ever wrong, but it didn't stop me from trying.

Part of the confirm I'm looking for is,  the white tip on the beak.   Is that really the distinguishing feature I'm looking for with a non-breeder?

Thanks

Ain't it the truth, brother.  Fortunately, some of the members here can pull an ID out of some truly lousy photos (which your grebe isn't!).
