Subject:      Pied-billed Grebe nesting, Clayton Co.
Content-type: text/plain; charset=US-ASCII

I was pretty excited to find a Pied-billed Grebe with 6 babies (1 riding on the adult's back) on a Clayton Co. Water Authority wetland today. The site is not far from the Wetlands Center, although not public (if it was public, the grebe probably wouldn't have used it). Nesting in the Piedmont is unusual for this species. I've also seen Common Moorhens mating and carrying nest material in the same area in recent weeks.

Yesterday, the south pond at Huie was drained and had good mud, so worth keeping an eye on. Nothing of much interest there except a Snowy Egret (fots) and 1 Great Egret that's been there awhile.
