Last Tuesday, February 26th, I took some pictures of a Common Loon on the
Lower Methow River. As is typical with pictures, once I got to looking at
them on a computer screen, I noticed something that wasn't apparent to me at
the time, a green band on the bird's right leg:

A brief Google search didn't turn up much that helped me decide where this
loon might have been banded.



I saw Eurasian Collared-doves at a couple of locations near Omak including a
pair at a nest that one of the birds was sitting in, arranging items with
its beak.
