Bird Pic Of The Week

Pied-billed Grebe

(Podilymbus podiceps)

Where: Chincoteague, VA • Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge (NWR)

Notes: This is another shot from a recent trip to Virginia's Eastern Shore. Action shots have always been a favorite, because of the story they tell. This little grebe was working the canal along the road at the refuge behind some bushes. After parking the truck, I found a spot on the edge of the water to sit still and quiet. After a while a Cormorant swam past, only a few feet in from of my position. Then, three Black Ducks cautiously peeked around the corner. Soon after, this foot long diver began chasing minnows under and around the shrubs along the adjacent bank. He disappeared with a dive , but I could see the wake as it pursued its prey beneath the branches. Suddenly it popped up from the shallows just to my left with this nice fat minnow. I think it is a Mullet. The fish flopped up and down for a few minutes, this gave me time to get a few shots. Finally it surrendered to its situation and stopped wriggling, then the grebe swallowed it whole.
