Cole, in my opinion the bill is too small, not yellow enough and the head is too dark. However better photos could prove me wrong.

We both noticed that the bird seemed to have an unusually yellow bill that seemed slightly upturned. On closer examination I could find no black on the tip. Based on what I have read all common loons should have a black tip(?). The bird was far away so pics are cropped.
