p.1 #1 · Pied Bill Grebe Nest Hatches ... Now Day 5


I've been wathing this pied billed grebe on her nest for a bit.. The wait is over ... I think she has 5 of these little guys. Unfortunately there are any number of green and GB herons around. good luck kids.
Taken with 40D, 100-400 plus 2X converter

Photo 2 ... Little guy on the left was checking to see how big his mouth is ...

Photo 3 ... Man are these little guys growing. I shot this photo today (Tues)... the first two on Sun, two days ago.
Mom grebe is constantly swimming around underwater and surfacing to bring little black things to the nest ... I can't tell if it is plant or aquatic animal. The little ones will hear her surface or see her coming and will make a bee line off the nest in her direction ... then return to the nest for a bit of stretching and lounging.
The male grebe is in a separate area of the pond and is totally worthless except for making weird noises..
I suspect the female will probably move them soon ... she is near a road and attracting a lot of attention now from bikers and dog walkers who seek out this nature area.

Great catch Paul. I watched the little ones from a pair of Mallards near work dwindle to 0 this year. ~ Ron

Thanks Jim:


Doesn:t look like these guys are going to piggy back on mom ... appearance-wise, thay are half as big as she is at this time.
