I saw a 2nd cycle Laughing Gull this morning at Lake Carl Blackwell. It was initially sitting on rocks right at the northeast tip of Ski Point (the area east of the Lake Store and headquarters office), and when I left, it was flying around and swimming/foraging east farther out toward the dam.
There were also several adult Franklin's Gulls on the lake (the Laughing Gull was not associating with them), Ring-billed Gulls, a Bonaparte's Gull, a Forster's Tern, and 3 Eared Grebes.
Pictures and ID notes on the Laughing Gull are in the below eBird checklist.
