Leucistic Common or Yellow-billed Loon?


Recommended Posts

Location of this challenging loon is north of Yuma on Senator Wash Reservoir.  There has been discussions on Ebird whether this is Yellow-billed or Common Loon by others who have observed this bird but all at a much greater distance.    NOTE: Photos taken just before and during sunset so colors are affected.  More photos here: https://tinanauman.zenfolio.com/p943911403

... Guy McCaskie and Curtis Marantz both saw the bird and concluded it was a Common Loon.

I'm going to show my ignorance of social media again.

There are discussions on eBird?  How does one access them?  I just looked but I don't see any obvious links to forums, discussions, etc.

Who are McCaskie and Marantz, and how would have seen their conclusions?
