Maybe a Red-throated Loon?


Recommended Posts

I zoomed in on this bird that was way out over the harbour and thought it was an immature Northern Gannet with the black tipped wings, but on viewing the two pictures at home, it looks like it might be an immature Red-throated Loon. It's flight pattern was steady flapping like a loon whereas Gannets tend to flap and then glide a little. Can you help with these poor images?
