90. Great Crested Grebe (Podiceps cristatus)

A familiar bird of lakes and reservoirs (and the sea as well in winter), the Greated Crested Grebe is the largest and most common of our grebes. It is resident in the UK and parts of western Europe, and migratory in parts of northern, central and eastern Europe. Its size and fancy crest (in summer plumage) make it pretty unmistakeable, and it is renowned for its rather lovely courtship dance - I came across this excellent video of it (soundtracked by Lemon Jelly too, nice!):

Anyway enough of that, here is my drawing!
