Following up on Frany Zygmont's post, I ran into him as he was leaving and he told me about the Bonies etc. I spent an hour plus around Point Folly and Town Beach. I saw the Bonaparte's Gulls and never had more than 5 at a time, but they were flying up and down the lake and there could have been more. I came up with c. 50 Buffleheads and tucked into one bunch were 4 Horned Grebes in nice alternate plumage. Five Common Loons also were in full breeding regalia. There were 2 Bald Eagles, and a walk through the campground produced a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher along with some Palm Warblers and a Yellow-rumped Warbler.
