Grebe And Merganser Fishing Together

Grebe And Merganser Fishing Together

I noticed these two coming towards me so I waited in a good spot to catch them both as they swam by.

Only one showed up… at first.

Suddenly the second bird broke the surface. What I assumed was a pair of Mergansers turned out to be a Pied-billed Grebe diving and fishing with a male Merganser.

Two in the same frame, and both shy birds that usually stay away from each other.

Fishing must have been good.
