The Washington Gap Analysis Project created breeding bird maps only. The non-breeding birds (e.g., wintering, pelagic (coastal), and birds expanding their ranges) are represented only by NatureMapping sightings.
The Washington Gap Analysis Project could not find any historical research records (i.e., Breeding Bird Atlas, Breeding Bird Survey, Bird Banding and Recovery) for 73 species of birds. The Yellow-billed Loon is one of the species.
NatureMapping observations reported by townships throughout the year.
The wintering range of this loon reaches from the coast of south-east Alaska south to the middle of California. It very rarely comes inland. The breeding area is in the northern parts of the Northwest Territories, Nunavut and the Arctic Islands.Text edited by Gussie Litwer
