Red-necked Grebe, Morro Bay

Late this afternoon I found a Red-necked Grebe near Tidelands Park. I followed it south along the park, then as I tried to move from the dock south to the observation deck near the boats, I was intercepted by someone asking me a bird question and tried to oblige. I never did re-find the bird, but assumed it was going south near the boat launch at Tidelands Park. Luckily, it was seen again.  Because of a couple dark lines on the side of the head, I assume this is a first year bird.
