To make a long story short, I photographed a YELLOW-BELLIED LOON near Rocky Point on Lake Chatcolet (Heyburn State Park in Benewah County) on November 2. I almost blew if off as a pale-billed look-alike Common Loon, but upon critically re-evaluating my photos in the past week I realized it was in fact a Yellow-billed (photos in eBird: https://ebird.org/checklist/S61120883). I'll be submitting my documentation to the IBRC.
Dave Griffin and I were back up there yesterday (Nov. 16) morning and saw one likely-continuing PACIFIC LOON and only 2-3 Common Loons. The whole area was pretty quiet.
