For the last few days, the parade of breakfasting
Bonaparte's Gulls off the west shore of Grand Isle
has included one or more Little Gulls. Today at 8:45,
an adult Black-headed Gull joined the show.

Six Red-winged B-b's were working only the topmost cones
of pine trees here back on 8-Oct. Today's flock of 100's
were hanging out near a cornfield.
