Clark’s Grebe Images, Facts and Information:
- A Clark’s Grebe looks similar to the slightly larger Western Grebe but they have whiter faces and yellower bills than Western Grebes.
- The Clark’s Grebe, like other grebes, spends almost all its time in water and is very awkward when on land.
- They often nest in colonies that can number in the hundreds or even thousands.
- They are migratory in much of their range and will winter off of the Pacific Coast.
- Clark’s Grebes eat fish, insects, amphibians and some crustaceans.
- They lay between 1 to 6 eggs which take 23 to 24 days to hatch. Both parents incubate.
- A group of grebes is called a “water dance” of grebes
- Clark’s Grebes can live to be 15 years old.
