Pied-Billed Grebe are sometimes confused with ducks, but they have chicken-like bills instead of flat bills like ducks have. Instead, these are small diving birds, and they are extremely fun to watch. I love to watch them feed, as they dive under the water in search of food. I see them all the time, but I've never actually seen one in flight. When frightened, they tend to dive under the water and come up some place else. They are just about the cutest water birds you'll find. One of my favorite birding mornings was when I was able to watch an adult feed a frog to its young.
Nice photos Scott! The other day I saw a Pied-billed Grebe swallow a fish that looked much larger than its own throat, but it got it down. Amazing critters!ReplyDelete
Love it. I hear we have them where I live in small number, however I have never seen one. Wow what an awesome bird and beautiful photo. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
