CommentWhilst photographing these Great Crested Grebes I noticed on 3 occasions the Adult Grebe take a floating feather and present it to the Chick. On each occasion the chick took and ate the feather which surprised me. Perhaps someone of superior knowledge might let me know if this is typical bird or Grebe behaviour.
