At Duck, NC this afternoon. This is a new part of the country for me, so I'm generally insecure on these birds. Thanks for your help ahead of time.

The first bird seems to be an Eider, though which is unclear to me (if it's an Eider at all). Lighting was not great, but I think I see the fleshy part on its bill. Of course, it could be anything.

This second is a loon. I'm hoping for a red-throated as that would be a lifer, but the darkness around the face might indicate a Common. Didn't see the barring on the back that I'm used to for Commons, though.
