It's a Pied-billed Grebe
« on: April 03, 2011, 03:15:02 PM »

I looked out the window and there it was sitting in the swimming pool. I had never seen one before. Wonder where it came from.  :?

I'm thinking that it descended from the heavens, but I'm guessing you wanted something more specific.
I lived in Galveston for a time and my brother was nuts about all the seabirds - I didn't care a bit but I was a captive audience so I had to listen to words like "rosiette spoonbill" and I think there was some kind of grebe mentioned in there too.
cute little bird, but my more thinks-with-his-gut buddy would probably ask if it could do the gravy backstroke.

I stepped outside and this one dove under the water and I thought it looked a lot like a penguin as it swam beneath the surface.
