Hi Jeff, indeed a great crested grebe.
Picture was taken near Giethoorn (Netherlands); the "Venice of the North" in the early (misty) morning around sunrise - before the hordes of mainly Chinese visitors hit the water ;).
I posted a couple of pictures from the same set earlier in this thread.

Wiebe.

Still learning to make the best use of it ... ;)

Pied-billed Grebe with fish.

Very nice Jeff! Is this one of the smaller grebes where you are living? It looks a bit like the little grebe I spotted a couple of weeks ago from a hide (unfortunately it kept its distance so I don't have decent pictures of "mine").
The little grebe is called "Dodaars" in my country, indicating the fluffy backside - which your pied-billed grebe also shows a bit ;)

Wiebe.


Yes, the Pied-billed Grebe ( Podilymbus podiceps ) is the smallest. The bird pictured has taken up residence in a small local pond. In winter we also see the slightly larger Horned Grebe. We get the Red-necked Grebe every few years. All are in adult non-breeding plumage.

I will dig through my Lightroom catalog and post some picts.

Jeff
... although low quality I wanted to show the Little Grebe (Dodaars) - you can still see the fluffy backside which earned the bird its name. Light wasn't good either on this overcast and windy day a couple of weeks ago...
And unfortunately it was too far away so this is a crop of the original, around 6% of the whole frame (in # of pixels).

That's much more like it... Nice picture of this small and agile grebe Alan!

Yours is also in summer outfit while when I saw them they were mostly in winter plumage (one still had a bit of reddish-brown on its cheeks - or maybe he was just blushing ;))

Its been a while since I captured a worthy shot for posting here.  I had a quick trip to Joshua Tree National Park and chased the Jays around...here is a Scrub Jay perched on the top of a Joshua Tree flower stem.
