Pied-billed Grebe

Waterhole by road pics.

Best pic I got of these two together. I think that's mama (left) and baby (right), not sure.
Pied-billed Grebe Podilymbus podiceps
"..the Pied-billed Grebe does not have webbed feet. Instead of having a webbing connecting all the toes, each toe has lobes extending out on the sides that provide extra surface area for paddling."
"Juvenile similar to winter adult, but face with dark and pale stripes."
