Pied-billed Grebe

For me photographing this little bird is right up there with any flying Kingfisher, Bald Eagle, or fishing Osprey.

Not only are they beautiful little birds, they disappear under water the moment they see people. The northern Grebe species may fish near people. Not the Pied-billed I have ever found.

I’m not sure he was ever aware of me near the banks. Certainly didn’t act that way.

The image above was not cropped because I wanted a landscape image of this tiny bird swimming through the swamp Tupelo trees with the reflections.

I finally have a library of images to work with since I think it could be a long time before another doesn’t dive and swim away.

    1. Thank you very much. There are all kinds of Grebe’s, most people see them as small ducks. A common one up north has bright red, blood like, eyes. Weird is all I can say. This little Grebe is extremely hard to photo since they swim under water. Thanks again and please visit often. Spring is coming (early in the Southern US) and things get busy here.
