[wisb] Red-necked Grebes - Schoenberg Marsh (Columbia County)

Late yesterday afternoon we watched a pair of red-necked grebes make a
half-hearted attempt at building a nest at this location.  One would
swim around with a reed in its bill and subsequently drop it.  It
would either  go back for it or abandon it altogether and find  a new
piece and start the process all over.  Other than that there were
dozens of pied-billed grebes, wood ducks, several common gallinule
(moorhens), a few ruddies, coots and redheads, a virginia rail,
eastern kingbirds and many dickcissel, tree and barn swallows.
Hundreds of northern bluet damselflies lined the walkway.
