I watched the late afternoon fly to roost today. The three Western-type grebes were with some diving ducks not far from the south end of the dam, and I got my best look at the Clark's to date.  (Alas. Tomorrow & Friday are forecasted to be windy.)
 
A lot else has pulled out, but I did note the following:
 
18 Common Loons
4 Horned Grebes
Several Greater Scaup
2 Hooded Mergansers
Several Green-winged Teal
7-800 Franklin's Gulls @ sundown. More still coming in. (A higher percentage than I have noticed before are immatures).
Several Bonaparte's Gulls.
 
Red-throated Loon - NOT.
 
Black Scoter -- NOT.
 
The gull roost was much closer to the dam than it has been.
