Got a message through the Rocky Mountain Naturalist's webpage the other day ... possible Pacific Loon at an upland lake.

Birding photographer went out, did find it, and got very nice pics of it: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49259180

An adult in breeding plumage.

Looked for it a couple of times myself. Did not see.

Then went out once more and found the poor thing dead on the beach. Very sad. It did not appear to have any outward physical damage.
