I went down early this morning to try and locate the Western Grebe at Horicon Marsh. Ran into Dave F, but both of us were unsuccessful. On the second pass, I ran into Anne M. We saw very little. However when we separated, I found the Western Grebe in the pond EAST of the pumphouse. It was quite a ways back, although it could be seen with binocs, but was much better with a scope. I was able to bring Anne back and we both enjoyed it thru the scope. It was surprising how little else there was along 49. There were only a few shorebirds, no large shorebirds, and no ibis. Two Whooping Cranes were back in the marsh west of the pumphouse. They seemed to be doing a little courting?! What a change in the marsh from last week. However there is excellent habitat for shorebirds and hopefully more will appear during the rest of the month. Again, the Western Grebe is east of the pumphouse, quite a ways back. Good luck.
