"Dabchicks of the world" is the title of this month's photo essay. The smaller grebes are found right across our planet, often breeding on ponds and lakes in close proximity to man. Many a birdwatcher's earliest birding memories will be of the 'small grebe' repeatedly diving below the water's surface giving you but just the briefest of views.

Please click on the thumbnails for a larger image of each species. Please also visit the VIREO website to learn more about VIREO and see more of their photos. VIREO host a new photo essay each month so be sure to check back for a sampling of more gorgeous photographs from the VIREO collection.
