Grebes

Grebes (Family: Podicipedidae) are a widely distributed order of freshwater diving birds, some of which visit the sea when migrating and in winter. These birds have lobed toes, and are excellent swimmers and divers, but due to the position of their legs under the tail, are very awkward on land. Six subjects include Clark’s, Eared, Horned, Pied-billed, Red-necked, and Western Grebes.
