Hi Folks

I though I was done for the year!

The bird was off shore between the nesting bar and Charles Island. It
was a ways out and needed the full 60x scope to see the field marks.  
It was feeding heavily, so it was up and down a lot. The bird was in the
neighborhood of 2 Common Loons for comparison. I saw it from 8:00 to

Large Size, Long Neck, Yellow Bill and distinct 2 tone head and neck.
