I was finally able to get free for a day of winter coastal birding on Cape Ann this past Thursday. The Slaty-backed Gull reported at Niles Pond was on the ocean side during the morning - views were distant. By afternoon it moved to the pond and posed very nicely. After I left, first winter Thayer's Gulls appeared for a show. Did not find the King Eider reported opposite the Elks Club, but had a good day (but then a day of birding is by definition a good day)
