Pied-billed Grebe
Podilymbus podiceps
Macá pico grueo/Pied-billed Grebe© Nicolás Giorgio A Pied-billed Grebe in nuptial plumage (black ring, black throat and white eyering) and calling. A typical behaviour during the breeding season. And now we know that it is not alone. Sally told us that she saw three individuals at Coipos calling and pursuing among them. Will they be the first to open the breeding season at this new Coypu Pond? This species used to breed here.
