"GOT ONE!"

Pied-Billed Grebe (Immature) - 5 Photos

 

Have been trying to capture Momma Pied-Billed Grebe with a fish. Unfortunately, she has been too quick on the dive, resurface & off to feed her four youngsters.

 

But now that the little Grebes are now fishing for themselves, this opportunity presented itself.

 

And unlike Mom, immature Pied-Billed Grebes are a little slower in their uptake of swallowing the fish. In fact, it took at least a minute for this youngster to position the fish into a devouring position. It does seem a little self-satisfied with its catch or perhaps, it was a case of "can't believe I caught one". :)

What fun photos! The little grebe does look happy with the catch and his/her performance :)
I love the beautiful browns, and grebe's eye is fantastic. Looks better than I saw in real life...
