MA - Kumlien's Gulls - 01/05/10

Kumlien's Gull - second-cycle, Barton Cove, Franklin Co., MA. January 5th, 2010.

Kumlien's Gull - first-cycle, Barton Cove, Franklin Co., MA. December 23rd, 2009.

A quick run up to Barton Cove this evening produced a second-cycle Kumlien's Gull, my first of this age class for this winter period. Throughout December, 1-3 first-cycle Kumlien's Gulls have frequented the Barton Cove gull roost probably involving about five different birds. Also this evening, a rather bedraggled first-cycle Lesser Black-backed Gull, images of which I may post later.

Elsewhere of note today, two calling male Ring-necked Pheasants and a Northern Flicker on Mt. Warner Road, Hadley.
