Hooded Grebe Performing a Fabulous Tango Style Courtship Ritual –
Nature photographers Michael and Paula Webster in partnership with Birdlife International, captured for the very first time for their film “Tango in the Wind“, absolutely wonderful footage of a pair of rare and critically endangered hooded grebes in Patagonia, Argentina who were performing a really amazing courtship ritual in the water. Their moves were so deliberately coordinated that it appeared at times they were doing the Tango, a sultry dance that also originated in Argentina.
The Hooded Grebe is a Critically Endangered bird that breeds on a few basaltic lakes in the interior of Santa Cruz, extreme south-west Argentina. Film by Michael and Paula Webster featuring the Hooded Grebe and it’s spectacular courting ritual.
