I went for a spin around Smithville Lake this afternoon and did not see the jaeger. Jack Hilsabeck and Leo Galloway were also there from 2:00 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. As of 4:45 p.m., they had not seen the jaeger.
I was surprisewd that the cold front did not bring in the usual raft of Franklin's Gulls with which we often also get Sabine's Gull. I saw only 2 Franklin's and no Sabine's.
