Grebe and Flamingo Notes

The ‘red list 2019’ of threatened species lists the Northern Silvery Grebe as ‘Near Threatened’ and all other featured species as ‘Least Concern’.

There are twenty grebe and six flamingo species found in all regions of the world except for Antarctica. Flamingos are also absent in Australasia.

Flamingos filter-feed on small aquatic invertebrates, algae and diatoms from silt and mud while grebe feeds on marine animals including fish and arthropods.
