  Leroy, the adult Lesser Black-backed Gull, was at
the Ann Arbor Landfill at 1pm today.  Directions to
all sites below.
  A juvenile White-rumped Sandpiper was at Avis Farms
at 12:30pm today.  This is only the second occurence
of this species in the county this year that I know
of.  Not sure if it's the same bird I found at Avis
Farms on Oct. 16, and seen there or at Swift Run Marsh
through Oct. 18.
  Dudley, the long-term visiting juvenile Long-billed
Dowitcher found by Don Chalfant on Oct. 3, was at Avis
Farms at 12:30pm today.  This is a second county
record, and the bird has been seen daily through today
at Avis Farms or at Swift Run Marsh.
