"Woodland Bottoms, Washington ... April 20, 2013"
The Trip:    Overcast gray day ... went out to see if we could find the Clark's Grebe or Tufted Duck which are being seen on the Columbia ... success on the Clark's Grebe but no luck on the Tufted Duck ... found also two Horned Grebes on the Lewis River, and one Red-necked Grebe mixed in with the Western Grebes on the Columbia, making it a FOUR GREBE DAY !!!!!!!!!
