Grebes Walk on Water

OPB | Oct. 4, 2012 8:30 p.m. | Updated: Nov. 13, 2013 10:47 a.m.

How on earth do grebes dance on the surface of the water? Thanks to high speed cameras we see just how grebes can propel themselves as if they walk on top of the water in the Upper Klamath Lake. It is an amazing sight.
