A Sungrebe (Heliornis foolica) was reported at Ognayewaste Lake near Pine Ridge.

The Sungrebe was reported by Josh & April Fools Crow, a local pair of birders, and was described unmistakeably.

If confirmed, this would be the northernmost recorded Sungrebe on record.

Anyone wanting more details on this sighting should email me.

Good luck chasing it.
Happy Birding!

Looks like an April Fools Joke. It got me a bit excited at first.
