loon sp.  1    We had only brief, distant looks at this bird, mostly by telescope. It was
    clearly a loon, and appeared to be an immature bird. But we disagreed on whether
    the bill was that of a red-throated or common loon. Recent sightings of an immature
    red-throated loon on Mystic Lakes made some of us wonder if this was the same bird.
    Several members of our party looked for the bird after the walk and the next day, but
    also never got a close look.
