Grebe


This is the pied-billed grebe. We haven't seen one since last fall. The grebe sightting is where Mike first coined the "new duck" alert, calling Chris to come see something unusual. This looks small for a grebe. We think we saw a larger one last night, but didn't get a good picture. According to our books, the ring around the bill means it is in the breeding stage. It's so small that Chris thought it was a baby mallard when she first spotted it following behind a mallard this afternoon.
