    Joan,

    Great article! I am surprised to hear the Greeks actually had a special word for “feet at the buttocks”. Was that a thing back then??

    One characteristic that I have admired and been entertained by is the Grebe’s ability to submerge seemingly instantly – now you see it, now you don’t. It is as though they have been pulled forcefully from below. They are a delightful bird to observe.
