I saw this on Saturday in the Bosque del Apache NWR in NM, U.S. ... it dived completely under the water for 10 secs or so. Small (similar to Bufflehead size), dark/black. Sorry I don't have much to go on.

I appreciate any help.

Welcome to Whatbird! How about Eared Grebe in strange lighting?

Agree - Eared Grebe. The lighting on that first shot almost makes it look like a breeding bird!

Thank you for the warm welcome! And thanks for the help with ID-ing the bird!

I've got a few more from my travels, and now I know where to go for help... more ID requests to come.

Thanks again!
