At around 5 pm today while unsuccessfully trying to refind the Western Grebe we discovered a breeding plumage Eared Grebe. It was at foot of 23rd St. which is at the western limit of Colonel Samuel Smith Park. It was associating with Horned Grebes and when first seen was very close to shore. 
Other birds at the east end of the park in the "bowl" area were an early Tennessee Warbler, Black-throated Green, Yellow-rumped, Pine, Northern Waterthrush; Wood and Hermit Thrush; Blue-headed and Warbling Vireo; Brown Creeper; Yellow-bellied Sapsucker; Field, White-throated, Fox, Chipping, Song and Savannah Sparrow; Brown Thrasher; etc. 
Colonel Samuel Smith Park is located at the extreme south end of Kipling Ave. 23rd St. is located at the first set of lights west of Kipling Ave. turn south off of Lakeshore Blvd.
