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!

-----------------
So how has the entire global warming frenzy with all its predictions of dire consequences, become so widely believed, accepted and regarded as a real threat to planet Earth? That is the most amazing part of the story.

To start with global warming has the backing of the United Nations, a major world force. Second, it has the backing of a former Vice President and very popular political figure. Third it has the endorsement of Hollywood, and that’s enough for millions. And, fourth, the environmentalists love global warming. It is their tool to combat fossil fuels. So with the environmentalists, the UN, Gore and Hollywood touting Global Warming and predictions of doom and gloom, the media has scrambled with excitement to climb aboard. After all the media loves a crisis. From YK2 to killer bees the media just loves to tell us our lives are threatened. And the media is biased toward liberal, so it’s pre-programmed to support Al Gore and UN. CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, The LA Times, The Washington Post, the Associated Press and here in San Diego The Union Tribune are all constantly promoting the global warming crisis.

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!
