The Pied-billed Grebe is such an amazing little bird. I have never seen one flying. Have you?
1. It is rarely seen flying and prefers to sink out of sight when danger threatens.
2. It migrates at night.
3. It does not have webbed feet.
4. The downy chicks sleep on the back of a parent. (This is something else I have not been able to photograph yet.)
5. It sounds like it belongs in the jungles of Africa. (Listen and see if you agree)
