Looks like this could be a Yellow-billed Loon!?!  ~ Milt

Hi Milton:

I took this pic today on Jordanelle, with my Nikon D40, at about 2:00 pm.

It's a Common Loon.

I took it today, May 18, 2008, Sunday at Jordanelle Reservoir, it was alone, no mate.

Hope you are well!

The loon was on the north/east part of the lake, between the marina and the old road (where 248 is). I hope that's helpful.

I've attached 2 more photos of him flying away toward the north...
