Hidden World of Birds in City: Story of the little grebe's pond life

Editor's note: "Hidden World of Birds in City" is about exploring a world of birds that usually goes unnoticed in urban spaces. This episode features photographs from Wang Xiaobo, who has been bird-watching near his residential community in Beijing for the past eight years.

A little grebe landed in one of the ponds in Wang's community in March this year. Later in mid-May, the bird was seen roaming around in the water with two chicks. Since then the busy mother spends every day feeding chicks, teaching them basic survival skills or chasing away the intruders. One of Wang's neighbors, Li Mei, has also been following the little grebe's family closely. Check out the video to see more of their story.
