Still three baby grebes, two eggs

I stopped by Green Lake at about noon and found the three baby pied-billed grebes looking lively. (One is on the other side of the parent.)

The parent swam over to meet its mate and they sang a duet until one of the babies swam out to remind them of the task at hand.

It pays to speak up.

One of the babies appears to have a down feather stuck to its face. I guess that can happen when you use your parent's feathers as a climbing structure. There are still two eggs left. I wonder if they'll hatch at all?
