    The family Podicipedidae refers to a group of aquatic diving birds commonly known as grebes. They are characterized by their long, pointed bills, compact bodies, short wings, and distinctive floating and diving habits. They are widespread, found across every continent and in a variety of aquatic environments, including freshwater lakes, ponds and slow-flowing rivers. These birds are also excellent swimmers and divers, but their legs are placed far back on their bodies, making them awkward on land.
