This morning (7/9/2018) while looking for the MUTE SWAN in Salt Pond A16 (eventually located in the far northwestern portion of the pond) I saw a HERMANN'S GULL on island #18. At about 8:25 it flew West until out of sight showing the grayish uppertail coverts of a second winter HEGU while the rest of the body of the bird was an overall grayish-brown (black upper tail and legs, mostly dark bill) . The female REDHEAD with young was near the first island (#20?). A half grown KILLDEER in New Chicago Marsh was exciting until well seen.
