Pied-billed Grebe

A bird with the most annoying habit… disappearing.

They dive and are gone in an instant.

The name is derived from Latin Podilymbus, a contraction of podicipes “feet at the buttocks”. There are other Grebes, but this is a subspecies and the only one left within it. The others are extinct.

A few have been around that seem to allow us to at least get within camera range.
