Red-necked Grebe - Off Broadway Pier, San Diego Harbor, CA. January 18th, 2013. Panasonix Lumix FZ7. A nice surprise as we boarded a whale watching boat for the morning, this bird was just swimming and preening off the stern. Not only a tour first, but interest gathered momentum as we realized that the species doesn't appear in the main bar graph appendix of "A Birders Guide to Southern California" by Brad Schram. We subsequently found it referenced in the "Birds Seldom Seen But Possible" section.
