CLOSED: Goose-Like bird with Odd Head

Aurora, CO(Zone 4a)

This odd-looking bird has me puzzled. Sort of a Triangle shaped head covered with black downy feathers. Sorry for the poor focus. It made for some curious images. Looks like a darned cute bird. My thanks to anyone who might recognize what I'm dealing with here.

This looks like a Clark's Grebe to me. You found a great bird there, I have not yet seen one.

Isn't he adorable? At the trailhead, the creek widens into a series of three ponds, and he was always in the second one. All by himself. He looks like he's doing water ballet. He wasn't there the last two times I went, so I'm hoping to spot him again.
