Subject: Apparent large flock of Franklin's Gulls at Ecusta Pond, Transylvania Co NC
Hi all,

A flock of 37 gulls reported as Laughing Gulls at Ecusta Pond, Transylvania
Co, NC, appear to be Franklin's Gulls, as far as I can see from the one
(distant) picture at

Thought I would get the word out as people close by may still be able to
chase them.

If confirmed, an unprecedented number for North Carolina? The high count in
Ebird is 7 on Nov 9, 2008.

Good birding,
