I know some of our resident experts here will know what this is. Checked both my books, and nothing like it in them. It's a diving bird, as it frequently went under for up to 20 seconds or so. Any ideas anyone? (Dave-I know you're looking..)....cheers.....Don

I'll go with Buzzsaw on the pied billed grebe ID but add it's probably a juvenile.

I think you guys are right. Could be a youngster, as the feathers seem awfully down like. Thanks for the help.....Don
