Diving birds - Central Park in NY

Recommended Posts

I need help identifying two water dwelling birds.


Bird one (first two photos):

-Seen on the reservoir in Central Park, New York City, this past weekend, 2/16.

-Observed very far in the distance...photos are courtesy of the 83X optical zoom

- My best guess for size is about 2/3 of an average Mallard 


Bird two (photo #3)

- Seen on the pond at the Northern end of Central Park in New York City on 2/16

- Spent 15-20 seconds under water at the time and would dive repeatedly after spending only a few seconds above water
