There was a pale first-winter ICELAND GULL on Jordan Lake around noon today. I saw it from Ebenezer Point, looking towards the US-64 causeway. It was sitting on the water among a large raft of Herring Gulls, Ring-billed Gulls, and Double-crested Cormorants. Low winds are allowing for good viewing conditions right now - too bad there wasn't much else out there, save for some Bonaparte's Gulls, three American Coots, and five very distant Horned Grebes.
