Quite likely . Clausing also saw a Common loon further downstream on Thursday.

White speckling on the back and very noticeable upturned beak raised above horizontal, non breeding plumage, so wondered has Red-throated Loon been reported at Broughton Beach recently? Looking at eBird but not seeing it. The mighty Columbia running very high, no beach, all pilings submerged, muddy trail, hundreds of Scaup near shore.
