Pied Billed Grebe



Little Pied Billed Grebe's are cute, Adults look like juvenile versions of larger waterfowl. But they are skittish and fast, expert swimmers and long distance divers. The trick is trying to predict where they will come up once they dive. They prefer live protein to the veggy diet of many of their Duck companions. This Grebe just barely avoids being pulled under by a large fish or turtle I doubt it was an alligator or it would be gone. Filmed at Cape Canaveral National Seashore were among thousands of water birds the few little Grebes stand out!
