    Little Grebe ?

      Why would someone take such a bad photo of a Little Grebe ???
      If it is a Grebe, and I'm not convinced it is, then it is a Pied-billed.

        I looked at this yesterday and my first impression was that the bird did not look at all well. I also thought it was too large for Little Grebe (I assume that the branches on the beach or estuary are branches and not twigs?).

        Red-throated Diver (or even Loon).

          Looks to have a grebe's foot; also looks as though the bird is oiled.

          Location of the bird would help a lot with likely possibilities. Maybe US Gulf Coast??

            Aha... you guys are good... pied-billed grebe

            Well done Bob!

            p.s. the photos are bad because it all happened in a flash - I was not really expecting the grebe to hop from one pool to the next (err... more of a flop than a hop I suppose...)
