Great-crested Grebes are diving birds noted for their black and orange facial ruffs and elaborate mating display. They inhabit large bodies of open water building floating nests in reeds and rushes, and they form pairs which usually stay together for one breeding season. They feed on fish, small frogs and aquatic invertebrates which they pursue underwater with lethal efficiency. By contrast they are clumsy on land owing to their feet being set far back on their bodies and they will dive rather than fly to avoid a threat. The young have clear black and white markings and are often carried on their parents' backs.
