It was DEAD & full of STIFFS!
Interesting Fact: Like other grebes, the Pied-billed Grebe eats large quantities of its own feathers. Feathers may at times fill up more than half of a grebe’s stomach, and they are sometimes fed to newly hatched chicks. The ingested plumage appears to form a sieve-like plug that prevents hard, potentially harmful prey parts from passing into the intestine, and it helps form indigestible items into pellets which they can regurgitate.

Wild animals are so fascinating. We are animals too of course, but since we have forgotten this, we are so much more messed up.

When the merlin app identified these birds out on my lake it mentioned nothing about eating feathers. Seems quite odd, but then I suppose it serves a necessary function.
Yes it does. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing with us. Happy Blogging! 🙂
So the feathers in the stomach keep certain things from going down.
