Just another species of grebe. You have probably seen the photos of the Western Grebes dancing before. Pied billed grebes are a smaller bird that is very common out here in California. Often see them in the same situations as and often mixed in with coots.

Pied Billed Grebe - A very nice confidence decoy, simple carve and common in my neck of the woods. Done dozens, mainly for kicks over the years but they do at a touch of realism to a rig Foam prototypes from last year, bad picture, sorry
