Grebes are unusual and fascinating birds, with spectacular courtship behavior and floating nests which enable them to spend their entire lives in water. In Grebes, Fjeldsa provides a comprehensive and up-to-date account of their origin and evolution, biology, and how they have adapted to exploit their environment, beautifally illustrated with maps, line figures, and his own stunning full-color paintings.
