I have always thought that stars turn into white birds in the morning light
& sleep with their heads under their wings
until the dusk begins to walk through the streets.

Someone's Baby at Coolart


This little one was swimming around in the Coolart wetlands.
He seemed alone.
I have no idea whose baby this may be.
Any ideas?

A grebe species of some sort, certainly not a pied billed though

Amanda said...

That looks like a Hoary-headed Grebe..

looking to be an Australasian Grebe Gemma; not easy to get as close as this, they dive under and come up somewhere else ....lovely photos

Whatever he is, he's cute!

I hope it's old enough to survive on it's own. It sure is cute!

How adorable. I hope someone found the little one and took care of it.

maybe some of the grebes. So sweet.

Anni said...

Yes, it's a grebe of some kind. And they ARE quite small, even adults.

Hi I thought I had already left a comment on this post. This Grebe looks like an Australasian Grebe.

It well may be an adult, as they do not grow very large, at least here in the US, where the Pied-billed Grebe looks quite similar.
