So I've seen this bird around the pond in my back yard and often wondered what it actually is. It finally got up close enough for me to take a picture of (not great, with a bright background, but it'll do for ID purposes).

What is interesting about this bird is that its neck will extend out about 6 to 8 inches almost like what a loon looks like. BTW, I'm located in the Dallas area if that helps with the ID. I've seen the bird catching small fish out of the pond as well.
