Pied Billed Grebe

Podilymbus podiceps


Pied-billed Grebes are small, chunky swimming birds. They have compact bodies and slender necks, with relatively large, blocky heads and short, thick bills. They have virtually no tail.


Look for Pied-billed Grebes on small, quiet ponds and marshes where thick vegetation grows out of the water. In winter they occur on larger water bodies, occasionally in large groups.


the photo is of an adult in breeding plumage - bill is bluer and body feathers are grayish in color
