This is a rare bird in the area where I live, but occasionally we have one that will stop and spend a summer. This is a younger bird, but it seemed to feed well here in our coastal waters. I .took all of these photographs from my kayak, which can be a marvelous platform for photography
If there is an image that you would like to know the making of, or to see in more detail, ask, and I can include it in a future post
Enjoy the photographs.

Yellow billed Loon shaking off water and beating its wings
Notice the water droplets as it gives a good shake?
So much fun to watch these birds go through their daily rituals of bathing
I love the color of the Yellow Billed Loons eyes
