Subject: Black-legged Kittiwake -- Lake Hickory
Lori Owenby and I found a first year Black-legged Kittiwake with a group of
Bonaparte's and Ring-billed Gulls around 11:30 this morning from the Oxford
Access area behind Oxford Dam on Lake Hickory in northern Catawba Co. We
were able to get a few photos before it lifted off and headed back up the
lake to the west. It has not shown back up since. I suspect it is still
on Lake Hickory somewhere and it may return to the Dam area since the
Bonaparte's Gulls are still there. We will post photo to the CBC website
