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.

Roving UHub photographer Mary Ellen spotted this purple gallinule in Milton over the weekend. The bird normally doesn't get much farther north than the South Carolina coast - where it uses its giant feet to step "gingerly across water lilies and other floating vegetation" as it hunts for frogs and worms. She reports the people in the house where the bird came to roost are trying to take care of it until it, hopefully, starts heading south.
