Clark's Grebe

Aechmophorus clarkii (Lawrence, 1858)

Clark's Grebe (Aechmophorus clarkii) is a North American species in the grebe family. Until the 1980s, it was thought to be a pale morph of the Western Grebe, which it resembles in size, range, and behavior. Intermediates between the two species are known. Source: Wikipedia
