A Pied-billed Grebe was found near Haugesund in Rogaland county (western Norway) on 5 May 2002. When I photographed it four days later it was active when feeding on Three-spined Sticlebacks Gasterosteus aculeatus it caught while diving. Getting satisfactory digiscoping pictures was hard due to hazy weather conditions.
This Nearctic vagrant made out the second Norwegian record. The first was a long-staying bird further north, in Nordland county in 2000.
