Photographic Life List - Birds of North America - mustap

Suspected Arctic Loon at Dillon SP in Ohio, October 24, 2014. Bird was at a significant distance, but could be observed well through scope at 60x. Adult in breeding plumage. Bird took off before i got setup for digiscoping, leaving me this shot with my SLR. Extensive white flanks were clearly visible. while the bird was at rest on the water. Many more features clearly observed through scope, and during the birds flight towards the group observing from the boat ramp.
