While kayaking in the Bronx late this afternoon I found an Eared Grebe just South-West of the City island bridge along the Pelham Bay shore (i.e. just East of Rodman Neck). The current and waves in the channel together with the diving activity of the grebe made the documentation challenging by kayak but I got several pictures. The bird was observed together with an Horned Grebe which enabled nice comparisons. The 2 Grebes seemed to go back and forth between the bridge and Rodman neck.
