Pied-Billed Grebes, September 16, 2015

Wild Bird Wednesday, Wednesday Waters, and ABC Wednesday

Wild Bird Wednesday
Pied-Billed Grebe, Guntersville, Alabama, USA, September 11, 2015

Pied-Billed Grebes can be found on ponds, lakes, and marshes all across the United States and in southern Canada. They migrate to the Pacific northwest and southern areas of the United States in the Winter. During breeding season their bills are lighter colored with a dark spot (pied-billed).

Grebes eat small fish, crustaceans, and aquatic insects, but are especially fond of crayfish, which they crush easily with their stout bills. (National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Birds) 

They were fascinating to watch, diving down completely underwater to feed, then popping up to the surface again.
