Subject: [texbirds] Sabine's Gull, Lake Travis (Travis Co.)
Hello all,
Arman Moreno discovered a juvenile Sabine's Gull on Sunday, 27 August, at
Mansfield Dam Park on Lake Travis. Despite being very difficult to pin
down, it continues today. It appeared this morning at 9:17 AM, from the
west, and worked the cove to the west of the point for a few minutes before
flying back west and out of sight. It appears to have a pattern for
foraging along the south shore of the lake in the morning and evening, at
which point it makes its way as far east as the Mansfield Dam. I believe it
was observed last evening after 7:00 PM. So within the 9 o'clock and 7
o'clock hour will be your best odds.

Across the lake at Windy Pt., the 4 Common Terns were actively flying back
and forth along the shoreline, though relatively high off of the water. No
Royal or Least Terns were detected during my short visit.

Happy chasing!
