Pacific Loon

Pacific Loon - Gavia pacifica 


Kolyuchin Inlet, Chukotka, Russia:  2015:  August.


Care is needed in distinguishing between this species and Arctic Loons.  The Pacific Loon doesn't show a large white flank patch when floating high in the water.  The head and nape are pale grey, and its head is rounder.
