Little or Tricolored Grebe

Tachybaptus [ruficollis or tricolor] (= Tachybaptus ruficollis) (Pallas, 1764)

The little grebe, also known as dabchick, is a member of the grebe family of water birds. The genus name is from Ancient Greek takhus "fast" and bapto "to sink under". The specific ruficollis is from Latin rufus "red" and Modern Latin -collis, "-necked", itself derived from Latin collum "neck". Source: Wikipedia
