The little grebe (Tachybaptus ruficollis), also known as the Dabchick,
is the smallest member of the grebe family.
All grebes are accomplished divers and to assist them in swimming under water
the bird’s lobed feet are placed well back at the rear of their bodies.
In fact, a grebe cannot move well on land and rarely comes ashore,
mostly to breed.
