Loons in Monterey, CA

Recommended Posts

These 5 loons were seen this morning at Pt Pinos in Monterey.  It's possible that 2 and 3 are the same bird, seen in similar location 20 min apart.

Looking at mostly the bill size, I would guess the first three are Common, the fourth is Pacific and the fifth is not able to be determined?  But the bill is being held horizontally, not tilted up, for those first three and also the back of the first one is dark, so perhaps those first three are Pacific, as well.


Appreciate the help.
