Pied-billed Grebe

Pied-billed Grebes are a year-round bird in Powell River, but in the winter months we see
more of them as interior birds migrate to the coast. The bird books say they prefer
fresh water lakes, and you'll find them on Cranberry Lake and Duck Lake often, but
every winter I spy one or two near shore on the chuck.

And if you get up early enough, you might even catch one doing its calisthenics.

  1. What a funny shot. I think I saw a grebe up at the cabin, but it was larger with a longer neck. - Margy
