Pacific Loon --(Gavia pacifica) (43285 bytes)

Interested in College in Alaska?

Pacific Loon
Gavia pacifica

This bird seemed mostly unconcerned with me, although I was trying not to give reason for concern by only moving when it was underwater. It swam significant distances underwater, and I had a bit of trouble keeping up with it.

Location: Starrigavan Bay, Sitka, Alaska
