Grebe and neighbor

This pie-billed grebe was photographed on Pinkney Island S.C. last month. It is a wide ranging bird, but this is the first time I have ever seen one. It only flies at night preferring to dive into the water in the day time to avoid predators. Since there was also an alligator in this same pond, I was definitely concerned for its safety.

Great photos! I'm not fond of alligators or crocodiles!
