On Lake Sak this weekend I saw the largest concentrated group of Western Grebes in ND ever in the east end area by Mallard Island. Must have been a couple hundred within sight on Saturday. I suspect the fishing is good for them! Got to see a couple do the dance on the water which was pretty cool. Are they all over the lake or primarily on the east end?

    I saw a few over by Steinke but not a big pile like you saw, however there were 3 loons over there.

    Probably a lot of baitfish in the area.

    BTW...they're called Hell Divers

    If you want to see birds, go count the Pelicans in the Tailrace. Must be over 200 of them.
