Hi Tweeters,

Besides a very enjoyable birding at the Fill yesterday, Saturday,
(beautiful group of Hooded Mergansers, Green-winged Teals, Harrier,
pair of eagles.........) Bob and I saw a Pied-billed Grebe in the
water between the Fill and the Stadium, struggling with some fine
fish-netting around it's head. After a while it just sat still for a
long time. It was sad not to be able to help, and wondering how this
will end - possibly an eagle grabbing it, fish-netting and all???????

Anybody have an idea what we could have done? or do in future similar
encounters? Perhaps contact someone who could go out in a canoe to
