Pied-billed grebe in Jamaica Pond

Roving UHub photographer Mary Ellen spotted a pied-billed grebe at Jamaica Pond yesterday.

You can tell a grebe (you just can't tell it much) because they're a bit smaller and not as black as the coots that frequent the pond this time of year.

Also at Jamaica Pond today, Stephen Baird photographed a bald eagle soaring overhead.
