  14. Saw this very deep diving loon today in maricopa county, Arizona. Saw it come up only once in 30 minutes when I took photos. Bill looked yellow but thought it was because of morning sun. Common loons are there and saw a few. Since this loon was a deep diver, went back to same location and spent 45 minutes only to see it dive but didn’t spend much time on water to get photos. Enclosing photos I took the very first time I saw it. I am thinking it could be yellow billed based on photos but it would be mega rare here. Appreciate any comments,suggestions,ID.
  15. Thank you @HamRHead, @Trevor L., @AlexHenry. I guess I have not seen non-breeding male before! Didn’t realize they can have a ring on their neck too. Appreciate your help.

  20. I got the feedback for first bird from eBird reviewer that it is female ring necked : note the pale ring around its bill, its white eyering, and compact Aythya body shape.
