Hi all!
As reported yesterday to Ebird by Don Mullinson an immature Laughing Gull
(lifer!) continues today (10/12) as of 2:50 PM on Crab Orchard Lake. The
bird was seen intermittently in the middle of the lake south of the beach
at the campground. Other finds include >90 Forster's Terns, one Common
Tern, one Black Tern, and several Bonaparte's Gulls, as well as a couple of
immature gull sp. One potential Common Loon was seen swimming in the north
end of the lake along the highway on the drive to the campground from
Carbondale.
