Great Crested Grebe

 

The Great Crested Grebe (Podiceps cristatus) is the largest member of the grebe family found in the Old World. It is an excellent swimmer and diver, and pursues its fish prey underwater. The adults are unmistakable in summer with head and neck decorations. In winter, this is whiter than most grebes, with white above the eye, and a pink bill. It is the largest European grebe.

The young are distinctive because their heads are striped black and white. They lose these markings when they become adults.
