The Pied-billed Grebe (Podilymbus podiceps) is a species of the grebe family of water birds. Since the Atitlán Grebe (Podilymbus gigas) has become extinct, it is the sole extant member of the genus Podilymbus. The Pied-billed Grebe is primarily found in ponds throughout the Americas.
European Starlings everywhere! They love the bird bath. Their young don't fly very well at first and I have found them just sitting on the ground. Had to put them in a tree to keep them safe from cats.
