Ditto to Slavonian Grebe (Podiceps auritus auritus).

Not sure there's any records of Horned Grebe (Podiceps auritus cornutus) in Europe?

I wonder if this is the first time this expression has been used in this manner since the expansion of Geothlypis to include most of Oporornis a few years ago?

Thanks!
I guess what it does show is that Cormorants would have been at least reasonably familiar to people in Sweden in the early 1700s?

Agree not Orange-crowned; not sure what to make of it though - doesn't look quite right for Mourning despite the strong legs and large bill, nor Yellow either.
