This one is not so lucky. He’s got netting caught around his beak. There are two grebes with netting stuck on them at the park. Several attempts have been made to catch them to get the netting off but those grebes are just too fast and can dive too deep. They still seem to be eating but everyone is afraid they’ll get stuck on something.

    YOur photos are so enlightening! I’ve never seen the whistling ducks up close- I’ce seen them land high up in the tree. Also I ha dnot seen the gallinule’s beautiful beak! That’s too bad about the plastic- it’s everywhere! http://floridacreate.blogspot.com/search?q=plastic

  4. Amazing wildlife pictures, love the detail. Have a very merry holiday season.
