The results are in! A recent query of mine to Tweeters regarding a possible
affinity of Pacific Loons to moving river water here in eastern Washington
reveal that conclusion cannot be supported by observations, at least not
now. Six birders responded, mostly with anecdotal information. While three
stated they had noted Pacific Loons on moving portions of the Columbia,
these same three also had as many observations from slackwater. The other
three had observations from ponds, lakes , or slackwater only.

Well, it was just a thought...

Thanks to all who took the time to answer my query!
