This seasonal rarity was discovered 10 June 2005 by Scott Olmstead

Common Loon is casual in Arizona in the summer. There are previous summer records for the Lower Colorado River valley and Painted Rock Dam. Seeing one in Arizona in alternate plumage, let alone in the summer, is a special occasion.
