Small loon sitting low on the water, no white showing on the flanks (eliminates Arctic), white throat contrasting with a straight dark border down the back of the neck (no neck "stipe" as seen on Common), rounded head, more delicate bill and lacks white around the eye (seen in Common), and shows a bit of a "chin strap" all points to Pacific Loon.
