Greetings, I located a Grebe this morning and got good looks in a 30x scope. Western Grebe. This morning it was moving between the South side of the North pool and the 5th street dam.

- Regards

Tony

I was going to have gone down this a.m., but got a late start, and am now drinking my coffee watching the 35th minute of the Germany-France match (1-0)
