Last night I went on the Granite State Whale Watch "Isles and Fireworks" trip. While dockside in Rye Harbor waiting to depart, I noticed an unusual loon swimming in the harbor. Well, actually it was a Common Loon; what was unusual was its plumage. I've seen Common Loons on the ocean in summertime before, but all of them have been immatures wearing some form of immature plumage. I don't recall ever seeing one in breeding plumage.
