Observation details

Medium sized grebe, larger than Horned but smaller than Western (somewhat similar to a scaup). Long dagger-like yellow bill with some dusky on the culmen. Big blocky head with a dark cap, dusky whitish cheeks reaching behind and almost touching above the nape. Dark horizontal line below the eye and hint of reddish on the sides of the neck indicate a young bird I suppose, but the bill was brighter yellow than I'd expect. Photos to be posted.
