After about 15 minutes of scanning, the PACIFIC LOON was literally right in front of me. Go to the open covered picnic area at area 3 and go down the trail to the gravel fishing area. Look east. The bird was hanging out in close proximity to a Common Loon. Other species include a GREAT EGRET against the dam, and a flyover PINE SISKIN. Just to clarify, the bird was initially found by Ben Ream while out in a boat on 10/17. However there was no verification of the sighting at the time. I viewed two Common Loons from the Hwy 36 pullout that day, but did not see the Pacific. Good birding.

Sharla Meester and Ed Brogie asked that I pass along that a Pacific Loon, along with a Common Loon, were relocated this morning after apparently being found late yesterday. The birds were currently being seen from the access at Area 3.
