I was unable to locate the California Gull previously reported from the
Forest Lawn Landfill on Wednesday, December 29th. There appears to be a
significant amount of turnover in birds from day-to-day as I had no Lesser
Black-backed Gulls and only 1 Glaucous Gull. I did have two Great
Black-backed Gulls (both adults). As a reminder to anyone looking for the
this bird it is a 2nd Fall bird and not a 1st Fall bird as noted in the
Michigan Rare Bird Alert today. Good luck.
As a side note, there was a 1st winter Glaucous gull and an American Coot
at New Buffalo.
