Before 3 PM, Ellis Bay/Linc. Shields almost completely devoid of birds except for r-b gulls and cormorants and one lone Redhead. 
4 PM to 5:30 PM best time for the birds to come in to roost
Multiple observers present. 

Highlights:
1 Caspian Tern - late bird. 
1 W-W SCOTER (there were a few rafts of ducks that came in) Thanks Dan. 
2 SHORT-EARED OWLS flying high from the prairie, over us and then to Ellis Bay. Thanks Dan.  
1 Common Loon

Loads of gulls came to the gull roost in Ellis Bay between tip of Ellis Island and the Dam. 
Many Franklin's, bonies, r-bills and Herrings.
Dan Kassebaum thought he had a Thayer's.  
NO LITTLE GULL.

Good birding,
Charlene Malone
St. Louis co.
