Birds of Conewago Falls in the Lower Susquehanna River Watershed: Red-necked Grebe
The Red-necked Grebe (Podiceps grisegena) is a rare but regular spring migrant in the Susquehanna valley.  After wintering along the coast, they journey to breeding locations on inland ponds in Canada and Alaska.  For the past several days, this one has been feeding on minnows along the river’s west shore just downstream of the mouth of the Conodoguinet Creek near Wormleysburg, Pennsylvania.
