Pic of the Day

Clark's Grebe, Aechmophorus clarkii:
Farmington Bay Waterfowl Management Area; Farmington, Utah

     The Clark's Grebe was named in honor of John Henry Clark, a 19th century American surveyor and naturalist.  Until the 1980’s the Clark’s Grebe was thought to be a pale morph of the Western Grebe, which it closely resembles (see western grebe here).  I shot this Clark’s Grebe at the Farmington WMA on the east shore of the Great Salt Lake, Utah.
