Fact of the Day: Grebe Flamingo

While flamingos are some of the most unique birds in the world, its closest living relatives are grebes which are not pink. They both belong (and are the sole living members of) to the biological clade known as the Mirandornithes.

Baby grebes are strange looking little creatures as they are striped black and white.

Grebes are lovely little birds, and I like this picture with the wee ones poking their heads around moms back. Very cute!!

I love Grebes, they are beautiful. I have never seen them in Montreal, though, but I have seen them on videos and in photos.
