[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Was going through my files and found this precious lil Grebe and led to share. Remember when I first spied them last year thought "It's a little anhinga chick" because one could see it diving under the water just like that species. Upon closer inspection spied the chicken like beak and "adorableness" and these quickly became one of my favorite of the FLorida Marsh Species!

Research revealed this species travel "at night in flocks to avoid predators". Thought THAT was an odd statement as the most I have ever seen together was three. THEN I visited a wetland where indeed there was a flock of them and was able to video it! It's a poor capture as it was VERY windy and yes it's obvious I wasn't using a tripod, however led to share as you can definitely see the habitat!! short clip of habitat and flock of Grebe's ENJOY!

Hello Brenda,
What a precious little Grebe you have captured. Great close-up allowing us to view it's cute facial features. Your video is pretty neat as it shows the habitat that these unique birds live in.
I saw quite a few of these tiny birds up at Magee Marsh this past spring. You must have most of the birds visiting you right now, as I haven't been seeing much around here lately.
"Happy New Year"
