Viewing Families in the Order "Podicipediformes" (Western Grebe)
Podicipediformes are also called grebes. There are 22 species worldwide, with the exception of Antarctica, and an additional two species are now extinct. They inhabit slow-moving bodies of water, freshwater lakes, and ponds. During mating season, podicioerdiformes birds choose one partner and are monogamaous, traveling inland to mate and lay eggs.
