Not a Red-necked Grebe

If you are becoming weary of the hundreds of Red-necked Grebe photos on this site, here is a Great Crested Grebe instead. Note the pink bill (the RNG has a yellow/grey bill), dark lores (the area between bill and eye) and white area above the eye (the RNG is brown in these areas) and the long, skinny neck and elongated head. When the RNG was swimming alongside Great Crests, it looked about half the size (at least in bulk).
