Grebes in Uganda

Grebes in Uganda

April 4, 2022

The Grebes in Uganda are small and sometimes medium sized freshwater diving birds. The Grebes are excellent swimmers and good divers. This is supported by the lobed toes. The feet are however placed far back behind the body. This makes the grebes ungainly on land. 3 species of the 20 that occur in the world inhabit in Uganda.

Eared Grebe (Podiceps nigricollis)

Little Grebe (Tachybaptus ruficollis)

Great Crested (Grebe Podiceps cristatus)

Book your Uganda birding trip with Africa Adventure Vacations to spot several Grebes in Uganda and other bird species.
