Here’s a shot from last weekend here in Kamloops of a juvenile Common Loon / Great Northern Diver on the left and a juvenile Pacific Loon / Pacific Diver on the right. Usually Common Loons are much larger and heavier than Pacific Loons but I believe this is quite a small Common. Side by side the Common is chunkier but there isn’t a drastic difference in size between these two (the outstretched neck of the Pacific might also make it look larger). I believe I’ve only seen Pacific Loons from BC Ferries previously where there are abundant in the area in the winter. It was a treat to see the two that had been reported here.
