Thank you very much for this information. As a true beginner, I am axious to participate but I endeavor not to step on ther folk's toes. Your message will help me avoid doing that. Thanks again.

Hi VSteven, we would like to encourage our users to help with some of the research into IDs instead of doing it all for them. To this end, if we give a common name for a species you can look it up on google and find out the scientific name for yourself.
We would also like you to read and note our FAQs page http://www.projectnoah.org/faq regarding what we would like to see on your spottings. Please state the actual habitat where you made the spotting in the habitat field, rather than elsewhere, and please do not copy information from other websites or books into the description, this is what the reference links are for. In the description we would prefer to see your own words describing what you actually saw. This is because our program is a database and it is used to compile reports. If details are put in the wrong fields they are like to be lost when the reports are run.
We hope you are able to help us with this.

Looks like an Eared Grebe in winter plumage.
