The reason these pictures are so poor is because the birds were half way across the lake from where I was standing. Couldn’t get closer.
I am going back tomorrow and try again.
Lake Weir, today, I definitely saw 2 Common Loons but then 2 puzzlers:
These 2 birds pretty much stayed together. Have “Merganser” type feathers on back of heads, but I do not think they are female Hooded Mergansers. I really don’t know.

Thank you for any ID help.
