004-01-2007 Yellow-billed Loon

First state record

Yellow-billed Loon — Wormleysburg, Dauphin County; May 4, 2007. Photo by Cameron Rutt. This near-breeding plumaged bird was found and photographed by Cameron Rutt. It was seen by many happy birders until the early morning of the 7th. The striking yellow bill with its straight upper mandible was extremely obvious. Also note the oval-shaped collar on the side of the neck. Although this bird was seen from Wormleysburg, Cumberland County, the bird was actually seen on the Susquehanna River in Dauphin County. This bird represents the 1st accepted record for Pennsylvania!
