CONTINUING A SERIES OF BIRDS ON THE OUTER BANKS FROM MY SISTER-IN-LAW

I am very grateful to Gregg's sister for letting me share these.

~American Coot~



In the long grasses a White Ibis and a Tricolored Heron, and let's not forget the ducky bums.  




Another Snowy Egret with Tundra Swans in the background, and an unidentified duck.


~Northern Shoveler~




I have no idea what this delightful little duck is called.  It is on the tip of my tongue but an extensive search of dozens of photos online has not revealed what it is. You've been so generous letting me know the ID's of these birds, so I am hoping you will be able to let me know.  Thanks so much!
Additional note: with thanks to Eileen and Ginny, I have an ID for our bird.  It is a Pied-billed Grebe.  Thank you so much Ladies, I appreciate your help very much.


Every post for the rest of this week I will be sharing more photos taken by my sister-in-law, and I would like to thank her again for letting me do that.  It has been a great pleasure to look at the birds she has been sharing.  You can click on the names to take you to more information.
