Question Several different grebes and a loon?

Hi Everyone!

I was not sure if possible to ID from the photos,
any help is great appreciated.
The shape suggests grebes but I may be wrong.
One birds neck was long with white running up it ,
yet the head was completely black,
not half upwards at the eye...
Which I thought that one bird might be a Pacific Loon,
versus a great crested grebe or something.
The majority are small and seem like grebes.
Any clues, or something that still defines the bird
given the poor quality of the photo?
600 mm at ~198 meter (650 ft) distance to the birds.

Thanks! Jeff
