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 later.
