Pied-billed Grebes

Another common bird at the Leonabelle Turnbell Birding Center (Port Aransas, TX) was the Pied-billed Grebe (Podilymbus podiceps). Most were in their winter coats, with either a missing or indistinct ring around their bill. However, at least one was showing the ring quite well (note the ringed bill on the bottom image, below). Here are my favorite images I captured along the boardwalk:
