Wild Birds of Ireland - Little Grebe

The Little Grebe or Dab Chick is the smallest of the Grebes. They are aquatic birds having a small very dumpy body, a short neck, straight bill and a rounded head. They are good swimmers and will readily dive when disturbed, surfacing often unseen some distance away. They can often be located with their loud high-pitched whining trill. During the summer breeding season they have a bright chestnut throat and cheeks and a pale patch at the base of the bill. They nest mostly on floating vegetation hidden in dense undergrowth on freshwater rivers, streams and lakes. They feed on a range of invertebrates, particularly insect larvae, small fish and molluscs. Little Grebes are resident all year round and can be found in suitable habitats around our coast, on inland rivers, lakes and ponds.
