Scoured the main lake, nooks and crannies, Mallard lake w/no sighting of the Grebe. 
 
On Sunday morning(yesterday), the Grebe was seen w/a scope at the Taco Bell Shelter around 8:45am or so.  Dave Haenni was very gracious in sharing the view.  I continued further into the trail, and the Western or Clark's Grebe was flushed by a small motor boat and it took a shallow flight .  The wings had a lot of white on them.  A beautiful bird.
 
At the athletic field entrance, many sparrows are out and about amongst the weeds.
