I saw this flock of birds briefly. There appear to be two distinct different species? Loons and Ruddy Ducks?
CLOSED: New Arrivals.
It looks like you may have Western Grebe (in the first photo) and Ruddy Duck.
I can't say with 100% certainty. Someone else may have another opinion.
I appreciate your input. I'll keep the post opens for now. Many thanks.
Ruddy Ducks in all the pics, also two Horned Grebes in the first pic.
Western Grebe is much larger, longer-necked and slimmer-bodied.
Yep, Ruddy Ducks, and two Horned Grebes
