    So I found this baby in the middle of the road on my way home... I think it may be a grebe from what I've google, but I don't know how reliable that is. So it it a Grebe or something else, and if so what do I need to take care of him?

    Welcome to BYC. Yes Definitely a grebe. Pie -billed I believe. He will eat small live fish or shrimp.

    If you don't raise diver ducks yourself you need to find a loacl wildlife rescue or breeder that does that can raise it until it can be released back into the wild
