Report for Saturday, December 10, 2005



After today's St. Louis Audubon Society field trip, I birded the
afternoon on my own.

At 4:00 I guesstimated that there were 7,000 gulls between highway 67
and the dam, almost all of them RING-BILLED GULLs.  Most of them
appeared to be adults.  HERRING GULLs were around, but a relatively
small number.  I recall seeing first winter and adult Herrings.

I found 2 TUNDRA SWANs in Ellis Bay, congregating with TRUMPETER SWANs,
and posted photos here:
