Pied-billed grebe, Erieau, Ontario, Dec 14, 2017


After the storm yesterday I took advantage of the clear but cold weather to do a little birding.
Not a lot around but I did find 4 pied billed grebes at the marina.
Podilymbus podiceps 
When in danger, Pied-billed Grebes sometimes make a dramatic “crash-dive” to get away. A crash-diving grebe pushes its body down with its wings thrust outward. Its tail and head disappears last, while the bird kicks water several feet into the air.
