Taken today near the Toppenish NWR in central Washington. Not sure we can get an ID from this blurry photo. It's the only picture of the bird. I do have a nice picture of the ripples when it dove. Any help is appreciated as always, Mac

Okay, I see it now. I thought it had a pointed bill, but I was seeing a ripple in the water instead of a pointed bill. Thanks, Mac.

Second! Such funny birds to watch swim around "looking proud" as I like to say!
