Subject: [birders] bird ID
I am currently camping on Indian Lake near Manistique. About 300 yards off
of the shore I spotted a common loon (picture attached). Although the
picture is terrible - rain, fog, and higher ISO - I do know it is a common
loon. I then spotted another bird about 100 yards from the first. The
second bird appeared from a distance to be a loon - but noticeably larger
than the first. Again, I took a picture at 300mm (same as the first).
Although it has characteristics that are loon-like, I'm thrown by the dark
neck that blends from the face down into the breast. Also, the second one is
definitely browner than black. Is this a juvenile loon, or something other
than a common loon? Thanks for satiating my curiosity (if there's enough
detail in the pictures).
