I found the Western Grebe at the eastern most point of Ashbridges Bay at
12:05 p.m. It seemed to be exactly where Cheryl had it before 9:00 a.m. 

Look southeast off the southeast point, which is southeast of the
washrooms(closed) and the east again of the second picnic area south of
Woodbine Beach.

It is very difficult to see due to the choppy water and the fact that it is
over 200 m off shore.

Look for the white cheeks and the black strip of feathers down the back of
its neck. It was sleeping, but raised its head from time to time. There were
many Long-tails around to add to the challenge in the rough waters.


Directions: Ashbridges Bay/Woodbine Beach Park is at the base of Coxwell Ave
south of Lakeshore Blvd. East of the DVP and Leslie St. Spit.
