The Slender Red-throated Loon, New Life Bird – Day 77

Excited to share my first Red-throated Loon with you, spotted at Wychmere Harbor.


Now that I know what it looks like, I believe I have seen them from a distance as I’ve walked the shoreline in winter; their graceful, slender gray and white bodies and slightly curved bill tips.


So different from the Common Loons, whom I ADORE…


Yet I could tell, even from a distance, that I was seeing something very different when I spotted the Red-throated.


A bit o’Red, instead of GREEN, for St. Patty’s Day!  😉
