Observation details

My first for the state. Found by John Herman on the 27th. It took a couple days to get confirmation of this bird and its correct identity, but after multiple observations by Gary Cowell, Dan Sanders and Doreene Linzell, and Leslie Sours and Carl Winstead, it was confirmed to be a CAGU and still be present on 10/1. When I arrived this morning, four were present but no Cali Gull was, but after about 10 minutes, I spotted it at the front of the gull group, relatively close to us. in relation to most gulls. For a lot of the time, it was within the gull flock, but it eventually went to the edge of the water and was alone for a bit of time while I was the only one observing it.
