  I saw the bird in the north part of the lake this morning between 11 & 11:15
  It was diving near the outflow at 5th Ave. Then moved to the middle of the lake.

Greetings,  I walked the North pool of the Lake Thursday morning and did not locate a grebe.  Also quickly scanned the south side and did not see one there either.  I'd be interested in knowing if you see this bird again.
