Pied-billed Grebe

Pied-billed Grebe

Pied-billed Grebes are small, chunky swimming birds with compact bodies, slender necks, short, thick bills, virtually no tail, and relatively large, blocky heads. They can adjust their buoyancy so they can float with just the upper half of the head above the water. They catch small fish and invertebrates by diving or simply slowly submerging. Pied-billed Grebes prefer small, quiet ponds and marshes with thick vegetation growing out of the water.
