Dancing Grebes at Lake Cachuma

Tom Riederer

I did another leisurely troll around Lake Cachuma yesterday morning.  No unusual birds spotted, other than an immature Bald Eagle.  However there were a lot of Grebes, mostly Western with a few Clark's, out in the large open area between boat launch and the dam.
There were dozens of pairs doing there "walk on water" dance.  If you've got a good camera this could be a great time to catch em in the act.
Small motor boats are for rent at the marina.  Check Windy.com to make sure it's a calm day as it can get pretty windy on the lake.
Yesterday was glass-calm gorgeous and a few fish actually cooperated as well.
