The little grebe or dabchick (Podiceps albipennis) is another species that lays in July or August.
Again, the head of the great or crested grebe passes, while that of the little grebe sticks.
An Ostrich has very different views in regard to a nest from a little grebe.

She is called the little grebe, or sometimes, by her intimate friends, the Dabchick.
This little grebe comes of a splendid line of ancestors, some of which were even more specialised for an aquatic life.
