Pied-billed Grebe with shrimp in beak

Buy this picture

As I wandered around a pond in Florida, this Pied-billed Grebe popped up from a dive with a shrimp in its beak. The beak has a thick black ring during breeding season so the Pied-billed Grebe gets its name from the “pied” appearance of its beak. That shrimp looks pretty fat and tasty, I am amazed that little Grebe could swallow it!
