Pied-billed Grebe at Lakeshore State Park in Milwaukee Wisconsin on October 1, 2019
On a walk this morning at Lakeshore State Park I noticed a Pied-billed Grebe feeding along the cattails. It did its normal feeding routine of diving for 15-30 seconds presumably getting something to eat and then resurfacing for a longer time. A fairly quiet day at the park other than a handful of White-crowned Sparrows I saw feeding from a distance on seeds from the wildflowers. At the park it was mild temps and a light drizzle with low winds. Images were taken on October 1st 2019.

Thank you for the nice shots. Fascinating coloring and proportions.
Such sharp shots. I’m counting the feathers!
