Loon, Monterey County, California, USA (1 Viewer)

This loon is over-summering in Monterey County, California. I think it is Red-throated, but it looks different enough from other Red-throateds in the area that I thought I would ask for other opinions. Photo was taken 7 June 2019.

Thanks. Sometimes I just need a little reassurance. I guess what most bothered me about the bird was that the bill seems straighter than I am accustomed to seeing on Red-throated Loon.
