Little Grebe (Dabchick)
The little grebe, also called dabchick, is found on fresh and alkaline lakes. The photos in the slidershow (top) were taken as an adult male shook/stunned/killed a toad and repeatedly threw it into the water for the juvenile to retrieve (Arusha NP, 8-08). The three adults with the monitor lizard were seen in Arusha NP (2-15), courtesy of Stuart Webb. The little grebes with the puff adder were in Arusha NP (11-16), courtesy of Linda Bushman. The family of six was seen at Mbuyuni Farm-Morogoro (3-22), courtesy of Kim Axmann. The photo of the adult and juvenile learning to dive is courtesy of Karine Van der Vurst. The other photos were taken in Arusha NP and Ndutu. Click the photo above to see 17 enlargements including a nest with an egg and juveniles.
