Red-necked grebe baker beach

Went out to see what the storm dragged in at Baker Beach. A stealthy red-necked grebe was in with increased numbers of scoters nearshore. 710 red-throated loons flew out of the gate during a calm period, presumably seeking shelter in the bay. Also very out of my norm for my yard at my recently re-activated feeder, a very tame male brown-headed cowbird. I’ve looked for the eastern phoebe many mornings in the last couple weeks but no sign of it.
