Clark’s Grebe Images, Facts and Information:

Aechmophorus clarkii

  • 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.
