I saw a Franklin's Gull just after 2 PM today at Leone/Loyola beach in
Rogers Park, Chicago.

I only had a brief binocular view and managed one quick record-shot photo
before the bird disappeared out over the water, heading north towards
Northwestern University.

I then shared the photo to a couple of fellow IBET members who confirmed
the Franklin's ID (thanks to Steve Huggins and Matthew Cvetas).

This was my first-ever Franklin's Gull sighting in 2.5 years of regular
visits to our local beach. Good birding,
