Pacific Loon

Another day, another quick stop for a new AZ bird in Tucson. But before I even had a chance to look on the lake at Lakeside Park, I couldn’t help but notice a fine Osprey wheeling overhead.

The Pacific Loon was easy enough to find and was showing itself nicely, quite close inshore.

A Common Merganser was also on the lake, and a Merlin zipped by. And I, too, was gone, quick as a flash.  I’m getting quite good at chasing birds successfully…
