Help with loon ID.

This is my 3rd attempt to get this message to the group, hopefully 3rd time's the charm.


On Monday around 6.30pm I saw this loon swimming in and out of the river mouth at Penasquitos Lagoon. I apologize fro the poor quality images, but can anyone help me with the ID? I think it is a red-throated based on the white face and lack of contrasting pattern on the neck. The back looks plain in the pictures, but I did see some speckling on there.
