Kids' Inquiry of Diverse Species

Local animals in this group:

grebes

Podicipedidae

All 22 grebe species are members of the same order and the same family. They are usually found in large freshwater lakes, slow rivers, or along coastlines. They make nests of aquatic vegetation that float on the water and carry their nestlings on their backs after they have hatched.
