Little Grebe


The Little Grebe (Scientific name: Tachybaptus ruficollis), also known as Dabchick, is a member of the grebe family of water birds. The genus name is from Ancient Greek takhus “fast” and bapto “to sink under” and boy does it disappear fast under water or what! Clicked at Qurum Park, Muscat in Feb/2018.
