Thanks to Pete and a few others here (wildman , etc sorry I don't remember all the people that have helped me with calssifications but you know who you are and thanks) , there are now some birds species I can actually identify (other than calling it the red one , or the funky looking one with the pointy beak )

Here are few of the Red-Necked Grebe (gawd I hope I got this one right )

Lesson in bird identification: BUBs = butt up birds (those birds that have their heads in the water and feet wiggling in the air). LBJs = little brown job (sparrows that look alike and are brown) DMEs = dead meat eaters (Vultures that fly overhead preventing you from looking at their wings and heads)
I am sure there are many others for you to consider when trying to identify these critters but these are the only ones that come to mind at present.

Let me write those down and perhaps I will come up with a few new ones thanks Susan.
