    DDADB12E-68AF-47F6-BC76-02CAD32C2F35.jpeg Any idea what kind of bird this is? Found him/her in the road addled this morning tried to catch it but it flew away multiple times and finally made it to the creek. Best I could research and find is that it’s a pied-billed grebe?

  3. I’ve never seen or even heard of one but evidently they’re fairly common.

    Yep, pied billed grebe. See em pretty regular around here, but have never seen one fly, only dive

    I imagine of someone asked me to draw a picture of a dodo bird, it would look a little something like that.

    They don't look near as plump bobbing along in the water. I'd imagine most of you have seen them at some point on the water
