Beautiful orange eyes that can pierce your soul
These small waterbirds are widespread all over the globe and are very easily found in most wetlands, coastal areas, ponds, and lakes all across the world. They usually are found on the edges of waters and love areas with heavy green vegetation.
Birds of this genus are diurnal birds that hunt underwater and are skilled divers and swimmers. They rarely come ashore because they are awkward on land. Outside the breeding season, little grebes prefer to be alone and occasionally congregate in small groups of 5–30 birds. Due to their extreme shyness and caution, these birds hide in adjacent bushes or dive when startled.
