Least Grebe

Least Grebes are found from southern Texas to Argentina. In March 2012, Erika and I found them to be relatively common at the Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge, although other birders commented that their numbers vary markedly from year to year. Because Texas was just coming out of several years of draught, perhaps grebe numbers were concentrated in areas with ponds. Least Grebes are the least studied North American grebe (Storer 2011).
