Picture taken at the Marais d’Harchies on March 28th.

The Great Crested Grebe (Podiceps cristatus) is a member of the grebe family of water birds. It is an excellent swimmer and diver, and pursues its fish prey underwater. The adults are unmistakable in summer with head and neck decorations. In winter, this is whiter than most grebes, with white above the eye, and a pink bill. It is the largest European grebe.

Le Grèbe huppé (Podiceps cristatus) est une espèce d'oiseau aquatique de la famille des Podicipédidés. C'est le plus grand de tous les grèbes. C'est un excellent plongeur, capable de plonger jusqu'à 3 minutes et 20 mètres de profondeur, mais sa profondeur habituelle de plongée est le plus souvent de 4 à 6 m.
