Pied Bill Grebe:
I saw my first Pied Bill Grebe on Swan Lake recently
and was very happy to see another one at Reesor`s.
Here is a site with interesting information about the Grebe.
Interesting facts from the above website.
A group of grebes are collectively known as a "water dance" of grebes.
Although it swims like a duck, it does not have webbed feet. Each toe
has lobes extending out on the sides that provide extra surface area for paddling.
Folk names of this grebe include dabchick, devil-diver, dive-dapper, hell-diver, and water witch.
The Pied-billed Grebe is rarely seen in flight. It prefers to escape predators by diving,
and it migrates at night.
