Eared grebes with chicks, video

This video from the USA says about itself:

27 January 2016

Eared Grebe chicks get a ride from one parent and are fed by the other. Chicks are capable of climbing, swimming, and eating within an hour after hatching. However, their downy feathers are not waterproof like adult feathers, and young chicks rely on their parents to keep them warm.

Video recorded by Timothy Barksdale in Montana.
