A short time ago I located a rather dark looking imm laughing gull from the north lookout at Cowanesque Lake in northern Tioga County. It was sitting on the water with about a dozen ring-billed gulls. After a few minutes the birds lifted off the water and dispersed with the laughing gull last seen flying westward over the lake with some of the ring-billed gulls. Drove to the west end of the lake stopping at some lookouts/boat launches along the way with no success in relocating the bird. I am currently along rt 49 on the southwest section of the lake where it is much shallower with many logs/stumps for birds to perch on sorting through just some ring-billed gulls and some DC Cormorants. It still may be the area.
