I received a call from Dwight Cargill at 10:47 a.m. telling me that he had found
a Lesser Black-backed Gull at Oven Bay (Tri-town) in Addison. I then got
another call from him at 12:06 p.m. telling me that there were 2 of them
there. I then received a third call from him at 12:21 p.m. telling me that he
had located a third Lesser Black-backed Gull there.
I was able to get down there this afternoon and did see all three of them.
They are all adults. When I arrived, Ted Murin was just fixing to head home.
He mentioned that this was the highest number of Lesser Black-backed Gulls
ever seen at one time in VT. The previous high number was one.
Dwight and Ted also saw 2 Glaucous Gull and 2 Iceland Gulls.
On my way home I stopped on Fort Cassin Rd. and found 27 Bald Eagles.
There were 22 on the west side of the road (Kellogg Bay) and 5 on the east
side of the road. Twelve Bald Eagles were in one group feeding on something
in the middle of them.
