Ric Pedler and I visited Muskegon Wastewater and the south jetty at Pere 
Marquette State Park in Muskegon County, today 17 Nov 2004.  The juvenile 
Sabine's Gull reported by Allen Chartier and Chip Francke yesterday was 
still present at "the bend" in the south jetty.  The bird is with about 60 
Bonaparte's Gulls and it fed at length right next to the jetty.  Ric may 
post a photo of mine later today at:

Other highlights:
Lapland Longspur- at least 25 showing well in the fields north of the 
wastewater, mixed in with Snow Buntings and Horned Larks.  Take Swanson 
north from the wastewater less than a mile, look on west side of road in 
field with large sprinkler system.
Snow Goose- 4 light morph adults at wastewater.
Sanderling- 1 juv at Pere Marquette SP on the beach.

Good Birding,
