Is not October very early for a Ross' Gull?  I think of it as a winter bird 
that comes down into the central USA only when there are freeze ups farther 
north. (There are only about 2 dozen lower 48 records). Aren't Arctic Ocean 
birds coming south earlier than usual this year? There are already Scoters 
and a Pacific Loon in Iowa. Sabine's has become annual, but it seems that 
there are lots more Sabine's this year than usual. What's going on up there? 
I thought global warming was delaying Arctic freezing.
