Here is some information about the Grebe:
Grebes are small to medium-sized water birds, characterised by their pointed bills (long and dagger-like in larger species), round bodies with tiny tails and legs set far back on the body. They are expert swimmers and divers but unable to walk on dry land. They build floating nests anchored to aquatic vegetation. They have an elaborate courtship display in which they rise out of the water and shake their heads. Very young Grebes often ride on their parents' backs.
