Common loon, or Pacific loon?


Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

This was taken in Coastal MA. Pacific loons are extremely rare here, but this bird stood out to me because it looked smaller with a shorter (but thick) bill. At the same time, it seems to show a broken collar indicating a common loon. So I would like to get your thoughts.
