Thomas E. Labedz, “A Nebraska Specimen Record of Clark’s Grebe, Aechmophorus clarkii (Lawrence)” from Nebraska Bird Review (September 1987) 55(3).
Clark’s Grebe, formerly known as light-phase Western Grebe (Aechmophorus occidentalis clarkii), was elevated to full species status (A. clarkii) in 1985 (American Ornithologists’ Union (AOU) 1983, 1985). This paper presents the first recorded occurrence in Nebraska of Clark’s Grebe and is documented with a specimen. Identification of Clark’s Grebe in the field is discussed, and a comparison is made of the Nebraska specimen with specimen s reported in recent literature.
