Looked almost like they were gonna start a courtship dance. Really cool.

Courting dances and all, with the hilarious addition of a Western Grebe that desperately wanted to be part of the action, and inserted himself between the pair as often as possible. Even tried to copy their moves. Apparently he'd heard there is some interbreeding and took it to heart. Good luck buddy.
Clark's Grebe (Aechmophorus clarkii) is a North American species in the grebe family. Until the 1980s, it was thought to be a pale morph of the Western Grebe, which it resembles in size, range, and behavior. Intermediates between the two species are known.
