Australasian Grebes are busy little birds, and like most of the grebes I have tried to photograph, rather nervous. When “startled, dives rather than flies” says the guide book and it’s not wrong. And they seem to be able to swim for miles underwater, often coming up a very long way away from where they dived. They look similar to the Little Grebe – or Dabchicks as we called them – that I saw as a kid, but they are a different species.
You can find more birds from around the world at World Bird Wednesday.

Enjoy the birds.
