A WESTERN GREBE was sighted on Lake Walter F. George, Clay Co., on
Wednesday, December 6. A RED-NECKED GREBE and EARED GREBES were also
reported, from Lake Seminole (Seminole and Decatur Counties). The Western
Grebe was seen from the dam. Lake Walter F. George lies on the
Alabama/Georgia state line south of Columbus, GA. This is the first Western
Grebe reported in many years and is a rare opportunity to see this species.
The bird was seen on both the AL and GA side of the lake from the dam.
