Well sure it's a loon...but what kind of loon ?

I'm going to guess a Red Throated Loon as the coloring is too light for a common and too brown for a pacific. But then again, I'm just guessing.

We vote: Pacific Loon because of all the white on the back, the Red Throated doesn't have that much white. Also, the low angle sunlight at that time of the day may be giving a brown tinge.

LOL Hey, I'm proud of myself I have never seen a loon except in pictures!

Pacific Loon I would think.
