Red-throated Loon

The Red-throated Loon is a circumpolar speices. In North America, this loon breeds acoss Alaska, the Canadian Arctic, and the Canadian Northwest. They winter along the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of the United States. Identification marks include its relatively small size, upward held bill, and striped back. With help from eBird, on 5 December 2019, Erika and I found this Red-throated Loon near the end of the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge estuary boardwalk. Fog and distance resulted in an almost black-and-white image.
