PALO is not an Alberta mega-rarity by any means. Several Pacific Loons have been found elsewhere in Alberta this week.
I wasn't able to get any decent still photos - the light wasn't great and it was windy. I did get a minute of pretty lousy video.
What do you think? Am I dreaming? Pacific Loon? Common Loon? And what about the duck that swims through the frame near the end?
