  1. Vier kleine snaveltjes … , papa Dodaar heeft `t druk … Tante Friet uit Amsterdam heeft het voor jullie allemaal eventje na gekeken. Het zijn Dodaars (Tachybaptus ruficollis) en zijn verwant aan de Futen. Het is de kleinste Europese Fuut en ze leggen meestal twee keer jaar op een drijvend nest. Leuk, ik had ze nog nooit gezien … , gôh … , zo`n schattig rondborstig vogeltje … Elfriede Heinzel * Amsterdam, 20 juli 2020, 13.20 uur … * Hollandse tijd …

  2. Such a beautiful photo of this little family, or should I say large family. What a treat to be able to capture this scene Takami, well done! The Grebes look beautiful in their breeding plumage.

    • Thank you so much Mr. Ash!
      They were quite a large “little” family. It really was a treat and privilege to spend sometime with them. Mama and Papa Grebe looked especially striking (and a bit tired at times) and often called out to each other with that distinct, striking call 🙂

    • Hello Dries,
      Thanks much for your wonderful comment! I can imagine all parents must feel the same way 😀 As for these little guys, I had a strong feeling they were happy to see the groceries more than Mum 😉
