Everyday brings a new rarity… Pacific Loon

I am at work today and I see Tom Hince name show up on my phone… with anticipation and slightly scared I answer the phone. Tom says that he is at Stony Creek and “guess what I am looking at?”.. We have been talking about that lake and the month of November and that it would be perfect for a Pacific Loon to show up… and it does… I am at work of course and I am so bummed. ¬†Luckily the bird stayed around and I headed to Stony after work and was able to locate it. I got to see it with several people… This is one tricky Loon… I would see it in my scope and then drive around the lake to get a better vantage point for a photo… it had already moved on and would be seen elsewhere… Oh well, maybe tomorrow… ¬†At least I had the opportunity to practice shooting Gulls in flight and I saw a nice Bald Eagle fly over the lake…
