Manx Shearwater meets Western Grebes

Almost certainly the first Western Grebes to set eyes on a Manx Shearwater and they don't look too impressed. Denver Holt and I discovered this amazing rarity in Charlo, Montana, USA on 30 May 04. Charlo is over 450 miles from the pacific coast, where this isn't exactly a common bird. This was a first state record and the first for the interior of North America away from the Great Lakes.
