For more on the Horned Grebe, please see http://www.shanghaibirding.com/2015/12/08/horned-grebe-in-shanghai/ Horned/Slavonian Grebe, Dishui Lake, Cape Nanhui, 6 Dec. 2015. Podiceps auritus has a flatter head than Black-necked Grebe, the peak of the head being well behind the eye. In winter plumage, the black cap is neater than that of Black-necked Grebe, with no bulge on the cheek as with Podiceps nigricollis. Note the whitish spot on the lores here. This individual is an adult.
