Podicipediformes World Map Parvclassis : Neognathae
Orders
An order with just one family and only 21 species, they are some of the worlds most beautiful and interest birds. There courtship displays are a delight. There are 22 species listed below but sadly the Atitlan Grebe is now extinct thanks to the introduction of large and small mouth bass into its only haunt Lake Atitlan. I hope we will learn before we do much more damage to the creatures that we share this planet with.
