Pied-billed Grebe and Buffleheads
Two more wintering birds spending their daily life on Cambridge Creek and close to my balcony is a Pied-bald Grebe and two female Buffleheads. Both of these tiny birds dive for food.
The Pied-billed Grebe has been very shy and stays mostly hidden under the marina piers. It has been here on the creek since before Christmas.
Pied-billed Grebe – “Silhouette Abstract”
I previously posted late last November that a female Bufflehead had been delighting me with its presence, and I shared several diving shots.
We now have two female Buffleheads that hang around, diving for food and resting.
They are a bit skittish and stick close together. It sure is nice to have a friend!
