This Pied-billed Grebe; photographed at Farmington Bay Wildlife Management Area in northern Utah, is a tease. Really, it is.
Look at those raised wings, how long they look compared to the stout body of the Pied-billed Grebe (Podilymbus podiceps), how strong they appear. How those wings make me wonder what this grebe would look like in flight.
Why is this bird a tease? Because Pied-billed Grebes only ever fly at night. I’ll never see one in flight during migration. Or photograph as it wings it way south.
I’ll just have to imagine what Pied-billed Grebes look like in flight.
*I am away for a few days, please feel free to share this post with your friends and family. I’ll catch up on everyone’s great blogs when I get back!
