thanks Wilson ... I went out there after work (6:00-ish) and found
the inflow packed with FISHERMEN !!! ... LOL ... kids and their dads
... could just make out (counted 15 at for sure) Grebes on the other
side of the lake ... smart Grebes staying away from all them fishing
hooks ... I could just barely determine a Clark's from a Western at
that distance ... went over the the Shillapoo end of the lake to see
if I could get a better look but quickly changed my mind ... the
mosquitos were trying to carry me off ...
