CommentAfter a lengthy period of constantly diving and bringing up morsels for its large chick, this parent Australian Grebe in breeding colours, decided enough was enough. The youngster needed to dive and find its own food. Here the parent is forcing the chick down under the water, and, after a couple of failed attempts, the reluctant chick did indeed do what it was told and went right under. Tough love in the course of a young Grebe’s education.
