It is quite a common phenomenon in Europe that grebes accidentally land on wet 
freeways or parking lots. However, the numbers in this Utah case are shocking.

I once heard a rumour that grebes often land on the runways at Perth airport 
and every morning a truck goes out with people to gather them up and return 
them to a nearby wetland - but I have never seen/heard proof of it.  Now I'm 
tempted to see if I can find out more.
