This sighting doesn't seem to be generating the excitement it deserves. As far as I know, yesterday at least one, possibly two, very experienced birders refound the probable Arctic loon sitting alongside another loon which they ID'd as a Pacific Loon. There is potentially a Pacific and an ARctic loon up on the Lake! I can't get up to the lake until this weekend, but i would strongly encourage birders to look for this bird and document it as best they can. As far as i know no one has taken photos of this bird. There are no accepted sightings of Arctic loon anywhere on the east coast.
This is a great find by David Hoag and let's hope it sticks around long enough for more birders to see it.
