Hancock County's Lock and Dam 19 late this Nov 5th afternoon:
I had less than 30 minutes to check the dam area and there were plenty more birds than I had time to sort through, about 4500 waterfowl/2300 gulls (Ruddy Duck and Ring-billed were the largest concentrations). Best waterbird was a white phase Snow Goose. Best gull was a 1st winter Franklin's Gull. Probably other goodies to be found, if only more time was available.
