Colombian Grebe (1977)

Atitlan Grebe (1989)
And to your second question. The High Andean lakes are under massive pressure caused by pollution, habitat destruction, climate change and introduced fish species. Take the Titicaca Lake for example, the Titicaca grebe has declined drastically in the past decades. The same problem is with the Lake Alaotra in Madagascar.
