Great crested grebe (Podiceps cristatus)

I saw a few pairs of great crested grebes at Herdsman Lake last weekend. They first caught my eye when I saw a pair resting great crested grebes drifting slowly on the water. They just looked like two inflated toy animals that way!



And then when they became alert and extended their long necks - Wow! Such elegant birds!
