This Common Loon was seen at the South Jetty in Bandon, Oregon. In Minnesota, we have the largest population of breeding pairs of Common Loons in the lower 48 states. But we are used to seeing them in their intricate black and white breeding plumage. So, when we see one like this, in its much duller non-breeding plumage, we do a double take.
