This grebe like bird was in Fish Creek Park in Calgary, Alberta. The Sibley guide and National Geographic guide book for this area dont have this type of plumage in their illustrations. Can you help me identify this bird? There are little ones and what appears to be the mom. There were no other birds like it around and the mom had most of her head under the water most of the time while her body stayed afloat.

Common Mergs love rivers like this one. I just returned from CO, where I frequently saw them inhabiting large, often times, fast-moving rivers.
