We started with an erroneous posting stating it had been seen that morning at 8:38 am. We arrived at the pier at 11 am and the gull was not there and had not been seen by anyone up to that time with many birders having checked the pier, the nude beach, and further north walking from that location. We also heard someone had checked the pier in Everett. No one mentioned Carkeek Park so we checked that ours selves at 3 pm and the pier one last time at 5:00 pm. Everyone we meet had not seen it.
