Pied-billed Grebes eat a variety of aquatic foods, such as crustaceans, insects and amphibians. Oh, they also eat fish, as you can see from this photo I got last week at a small pond in Danbury, Conn.
Now the next question … why is it called a Pied-billed Grebe?
The word “pied” means having two more colors. This grebe’s bill is silver/gray and black in the summer.
