Mobelha-grande, Great Northern Loon

(Gavia immer)

Observations of this kind are subject to approval by the Portuguese Rarities Committee.

The Great Northern Loon breeds in North America, Greenland, Iceland, and Great Britain. This species winters on sea coasts or on large lakes of south Europe and the United States, and south to northwestern areas of Africa.

A rare moment for me.
