486. Pied-Billed Grebe
Pied-billed Grebes are found in freshwater wetlands with emergent vegetation, such as cattails.They are occasionally found in salt water. When breeding they are found in emergent vegetation near open water, and in the winter they are primarily found in open water due to the lack of nests to maintain. They may live near rivers, but prefer still water. They may be found in higher elevations when migrating. They will breed in restored and man-made wetlands.
Pied-billed Grebes live approximately 10–12 years.
