About the Pied-billed Grebe

The Pied-billed Grebe is a species of grebe that lives and breeds in the Americas. Pied-billed Grebes are small and stocky. Males and females have similar plumage. They develop a broad black band around their bills during breeding season, giving them their descriptive common name.

Pied-billed Grebes breed throughout much of North America. Populations that breed in areas that freeze over in the winter will migrate south, while other populations of Pied-billed Grebes remain in their breeding grounds year-round.

Pied-billed Grebes feed on small aquatic animals, including invertebrates, fish, and amphibians. They dive under the water in search for prey items.
