A Reflecting Grebe

I sighted a lone Pied-billed Grebe in the middle of glassy-calm marsh waters and made my way down the pier to get closer to this small, diving water bird.

Pied-billed Grebes are 11 – 15″ long and weigh 9 – 20 oz.  That puts them in size comparison between a Crow and a Robin.

Pied-billed Grebe males and females look basically alike; but alongside each other, the male is usually bigger with a thicker bill.

This is just two of the couple dozen photos I was able to take.  The still water and lighting conditions couldn’t have been more perfect.

Adorable little cutie, isn’t he/she?!!
