Description

This grebe was floating on the water by itself in a fairly shallow part of the small pond at the Smith Oaks Rookery. The bill was a very obvious give away as to what species this was. I did not observe the ducking behavior while the grebe was here, probably because the water was so shallow in this area. I had seen a pair further out into the pond earlier who were ducking under the water and reemerging after about 15 or so seconds.
