The transitional-plumaged Pacific Loon, found by Frank Gallo on Saturday, was 
refound today by Greg Hanisek and Bill Banks off the former St. 
John's-by-the-Sea building, just west of Bradley Point.
It appears to be somewhat elusive. I spent several hours yesterday checking that 
same area. Visibility was good and only a few Common Loons were evident, along 
with one lingering Red-throated, but despite vigilant checking there was no sign 
of the Pacific between 8am and 10:30am yesterday.

So, it is obviously still around and can seemingly disappear for times. I would 
appreciate any later reports posted to the list as to location since I will 
likely look for it after work.
