NO CALIFORNIA GULL at Riverlands for many (as far as I know) including some
of the birding elite. Birds were not co-operative and decided to stay on the
wall of the locks for an extended period of time making viewing difficult.
The roost finally started to form in Ellis Bay in great numbers around 4 PM
(maybe?) so light was being lost quickly.
Don't know what is up with the gulls staying so far away until so late.
Think they were afraid of the horde of birders...?
A 1W THAYER'S was spotted by the group though.
Some birders thought they had 4 BLACK SCOTERS.
Heard that Bill Rowe had the TUNDRA SWAN in Heron Pond at the very end of
the day.

Lots of gulls, just difficult conditions (wind, lack of light and distance -
I know, weenie excuses)

Next quest is a MEW.......yeah, right.

Nitie-nite.....zzzzzzzz,
