The Pied-billed Grebes are such cute little diving ducks!
They hardly have any tail at all. These grebes have unusually thick bills to help them crush large crustaceans. This is a good sign that we have crawdads!
According to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Pied-billed grebes are “part bird and part submarine”. “They can adjust their buoyancy and often use this ability to float with just the upper half of the head above the water. They catch small fish and invertebrates by diving or simply slowly submerging.”
