The featured image shows a breeding adult Pied-billed Grebe whilst the remaining photos show the juvenile stage.
- Although it swims like a duck, it does not have webbed feet. Each toe has lobes extending out on the sides that provide extra surface area for paddling.
- Folk names of this grebe include dab chick, devil-diver, dive-dapper, hell-diver, and water witch.
- The Pied-billed Grebe is rarely seen in flight. It prefers to escape predators by diving, and it migrates at night.
- A group of grebes are collectively known as a “water dance” of grebes.
