Shy and Not so Shy

In the lake, often several feet from shore, a lone waterfowl appears and disappears with a dive.  Rarely has this bird been close enough to photograph for identification.  Today was an exception.

This is a Pied-billed Grebe.  This is an interesting but shy bird and rarely seen in flight.  They migrate, but do so in the night.  Although it swims like a duck, their feet are not webbed.  Each toe has lobes on the sides that give extra surface for swimming.  Click the link for more information.

Remember this 'peeping' bud?

This one is NOT so shy today!

Hope you enjoyed!
