By 11 a.m. this morning, there were three fluffy baby pied-billed grebes in the nest and two eggs. The parents took turns with the task. One would dive around, forage, fix up the nest and feed the babies. The other would sit on the eggs.
The babies clambered over whichever adult was on the nest, often stopping to snuggle under its wings. And they ate a lot.
Funny, the pink on their faces matches the pink on the willow leaf in the last picture.
