Artist's Description

Click on the image to view larger

The Great Crested Grebe has an elaborate mating display. Courtship involve complicated dances, touching, vocalizations and displays of beauty. Like all grebes, it nests on the water’s edge, since its legs are set relatively far back and it is thus unable to walk very well. The Great Crested Grebe is the largest member of the grebe family found in the Old World, with some larger species residing in the Americas. They measure 46–51 cm (18–20 in) long with a 59–73 cm (23–29 in) wingspan and weigh 0.9 to 1.5 kg (2.0 to 3.3 lb).
