Title: Juvenile Red-throated Loon
Post by: takkatakka on October 10, 2020, 11:11:34 pm
Hello again,

I’m pretty sure that this is a Red-throated Loon but I just wanted to double check. Dark neck, thin wings, small feet, small bill and a bit of a hunched appearance are pointing me in this direction.

Thanks,

Thanks. First time I got somewhat decent photos of one.

Haha, they always stay away far from the shore lines, don't they? And the same goes with the Pacific Loon.

Definitely!

My only "picture" of a Pacific Loon, if you could even call it an Id picture.
