Immature Pied-billed Grebe
 The pied-billed grebe is the most widely distributed grebe in North America. They are found through out the  continent except in the far northern reaches. In much of their range they are year round residents however in in the north east and north central they migrate south from the breeding range for the winter. Even though young pied-billed grebes often leave the nest soon after they hatch they spend most of their time on the backs of their parents. By the time that they are four weeks old they spend most of their time on the water. This is an immature bird.

Welcome to Tuesday Tweets! To join in the fun just post a photo of a bird and then link it by here by using the handy dandy link below. Then make sure you visit other sites to do a little bird watching.

Where I live, pied-billed grebes are rather shy so congratulations for getting that close.
