The Grebes are small water birds who forage for tiny aquatic animals at the bottom of ponds and lakes. The have lobed feet, and can dive very quickly out of sight. The Least Grebe is specific to the southern region of Texas. He is a gray, drab little bird with a sharp bill. He is much smaller than a duck.
About the most exciting thing you can say about him is that he has yellow eyes.
When I first saw this little bird, I thought of a turd bobbing up and down in the water.
