Yellow-billed Loon
[Gavia adamsii]

[Length 35 in. Wingspan 49 in.]

Yellow-billed Loons breed in the high Arctic regions of northcentral and northwestern Canada and northern Alaska. They winter off the southern coast of Alaska, western coast of Canada, and the extreme northwestern coast of the US. Every year a few are reported south of this area along the west cost of the US and even fewer are reported inland on large lakes. Amazingly, this Yellow-billed Loon was discovered along the southeastern coast of Texas in late December 2000 by Scarlet and George Colley, who run Colley's Fins to Feathers Photo Safaris boat tours out of South Padre Island, Texas. It is one of the southernmost records for the continental United States! This photo was taken from the Colley's tour boat four months later in late April 2001 as the bird was molting heavily from winter plumage to breeding plumage off South Padre Island, Texas, USA. Photo taken with a Nikkor 300mm EDAF f4.0 lens on Kodachrome 200 film. (Date: April 2001)
