I tried accessible gull roost spots on the Kitsap side of the water from Point no Point back to Bainbridge Island. Kingston Bay held the largest concentration of California Gulls, but I could not pick out a dark headed rarity among them. There are likely a few spots south of Eglon and again south of Kingston that are essentially not accessible by land and could only be reasonably checked by boat. So unless our wonderful, exceptionally rare gull friend establishes some sort of habitual return roosting spot, moving around to various gull roost spots and looking for birder updates here will perhaps be the best strategy.
