    The photo of the Western Grebe is fantastic! However, these birds are declining at an alarming rate. When I moved to West Seattle in 2002 I would see rafts of them, now your lucky to see 2 or 3.  Some point soon they will disappear from our waters.  Not very many people really care because it doesn’t impact them, but it’s a point of concern for some…

Sorry, comment time is over.
