adult LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULL in the gull roast at Riverlands EDA.
an interesting gull that I am not going to stick my neck out on.

Saw the three TUNDRA SWANS (2 marked adults and one juvie) but still think 
there is one more, an adult without yellow on the lores. All four were 
together in Ellis Bay rather close to the shoreline.

And finally the DOWITCHER species that we saw at Winfield, is just that, a 
DOWITCHER species.
We saw several times that there was more white on the tail than black and 
have pictures (continued to raise it's wing to balance as it moved on it's 
one good leg) and because we did not hear it vocalize, conventional wisdom 
says it can only be IDed as a DOWITCHER species....for now anyway.

Nite.
