The on-again-off-again SURF SCOTERS at NPM were back today. Adam Sell reported 5 this morning, and I had 2 this afternoon, though I think the others were hiding near the rock wall. Also, at the park office of IBSP there were 3 female BLACK SCOTERS feeding very close in the surf.
Also of note were the 1000+ gulls in the harvested cornfields due to all the rain. I searched carefully through the birds but was only able to pick out 3 LESSER BLACK-BACKED adults. The largest groups were at Atkinson Rd. In Grayslake and the roundabout at Wadsworth Rd. And Hunt Club Rd.

Bird On!
