Future on my back ( Little grebe carrying chicks)
The little grebe is a small water bird with a pointed bill. The adult is unmistakable in summer, predominantly dark above with its rich, rufous colour neck, cheeks and flanks, and bright yellow gape.
The little grebe is an excellent swimmer and diver and pursues its fish and aquatic invertebrate prey underwater. It uses the vegetation skillfully as a hiding place.
Chicks are often carried on the backs of the swimming adults. In India, the species breeds during the rainy season.
