Pied-billed Grebe

The pied-billed grebe is a common site on lakes and ponds during the summer. They breed on ponds and other wetlands with a lot of emergent vegetation. Pied-billed grebes will breed in this area but during the winter they migrate to the southern half of North America, Central America, or South America where they mingle with the populations that stay in these areas year round.

It doesn't look like an adult - maybe the short body and the short bill do that!

My Wednesday photo is a BROWN PELICAN at the marina [I also have another photo, by link, of the same pelican that is much better...a close up on my photo blog].

COME SEE THE BIRD!

Hope your Wednesday is treating you well.
