  1. A Beautiful Blog Takami, I am sorry I did not realize your blog earlier. Beautiful family shots of the Grebe, I love the way they are carried on the backs of the parent. What species of Grebe is it Takami? It looks similar in the face to our Australasian Grebe with its breeding plumage.

    • Hello Ashley,
      Thank you so much for stopping by my blog – it’s an honor 🙂

      Yes, this is a Little Grebe family (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_grebe) and I believe it is pretty much the same as your Australasian Grebe – especially the striking golden eyes along with the breeding plumage.

      We too love how they are given “piggy back rides” when tiny, and how both Mama and Papa Grebe participate in raising the chicks and keeping house 🙂 Little Grebes were my main photo project in 2019 and it was a real treat to observe them.

      All best,
      Takami
