Pied-billed grebes are commonly found in marshes and wetlands in Mexico and the southern United States year-round and seen in the northern U.S. and southern Canada during the summer breeding season. They are less social and more secretive than many species of grebe. They forage by diving beneath the water and snatching insects, small fish, and other aquatic life.
