As usual my shots are taken just for documentation and this bird continually dives and usually very distant, so mine are of poor quality but I'd rather watch a bird than take great photos anytime. The bird stays pretty far out but at any distance it really stands out. This blurred shot gives you a feel for the thick neck on this bird but does little justice to the size of the bill. The head was always turned up and the light bill flashed in the sun.
Many times we had 3 species of loons in view but I never could get all 4 in one sweep of the scope.
