The second pied-billed grebe hung around for a few days. One of the two celebrated kinship with a big fish catch.
Cutest little thing with a huge catch in his bill.
It took several attempts to swallow the fish.
But it was finally successful.
Looking mighty pleased with itself.
The visiting grebe flew off after a few days. Nessie stayed with us a bit longer, disappeared for a day, then came back, only to leave again. I've got one more set of photos of him/her I'll post in a few days, but I believe Nessie may be gone for the season.
