Eared Grebe
Podiceps nigricollis

Most abundant grebe in the world
...fall migration is the latest of all
bird species in No. Amer.

 I wanted to write a poem about a grebe but I still
Couldn’t think of a word that rimed with Grebe
My mind went back and forth and with my will
I came up with a word, my mind a mill
The word was GREBE. There is only one. Be still.
