Yesterday (10/10/17) at 2:45pm I saw the Dash Point Franklin's Gull at the creek outlet at Dash Point State Park in King County. If you go to the pier and don't see it flying around scope the creek mouth to the east. Or drive over for closer looks.
At the Cedar Rive mouth in Renton between 4:30-5pm there was a hybrid Glaucous x Glaucous-winged Gull. It was a very pale and washed out first year bird with a pale eye and a pink bill with smudging extending up from the black tip. Thanks to Ryan Merril for helping me sort out that this points to it being a hybrid and not just a messy looking Glaucous.
