"Grebes" - Podiceps, Latham.
Game birds include ducks, geese, plovers, snipe, loons, grebes, terns, rails, the woodcock and the ruffed grouse; quails are scarce except on Long Island, where a number or young birds are liberated each year, and by the same mea 's a supply of pheasants is maintained in some parts of the state.
Large numbers of grebes - great crested, eared, and little, - gulls and pelicans frequent the lake.
Eared grebes and ring-billed gulls breed on the sloughs of the plains, and rarely the white pelican nests about the lake shores.
In the marshes of the Salt Lake breed grebes, gulls and terns, and formerly the white pelican.
