Western Grebe in Brooklyn NY...

Maybe, the title of this post should have been, "Shane Blodgett has done it again". Like he did in finding the still ongoing Common/Mew Gull (see my post here), Shane has found another great bird for Brooklyn and NY. A Western Grebe, which he found just east of the Coney Island fishing pier in Brooklyn this morning.

I was out and about, when I got the call from Shane but quickly diverted and headed over to the location of the bird. I enjoyed decent binocular and good scope views with a number of other birders (see photo above) who also came out to get this rarity. Below, are some digiscoped shots I have uploaded.
