Subject: [IBLE] Late Report: YELLOW-BILLED LOON at Lake Chatcolet, Benewah County
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.

Good Birding,
