Podicipediformes - grebes
Grebes are found on fresh water lakes, ponds, and rivers. Some species winter along ocean coasts. Grebes dive from the surface of the water for fish, crustaceans, and mollusks.
Grebes have stocky bodies; long, slightly webbed, lobed toes; long necks; small heads; and small tails. Some species have long, pointed bills, other species have medium length, conical bills. Their legs are set back on their bodies and grebes are clumsy on land.
