About seven Bonaparte's gulls have been hanging out on the main beach
(west side) of Lake Nokomis with the flock of ring-billeds and a
couple of herring gulls for the past couple of days.
Not a super exciting sighting, but in this weather...
When they're not on the beach it's fun to watch their surface-feeding
technique and see their beautiful upper wing patterns in flight (at
least several are adults).
Otherwise slow the past few days on L. Hiawatha/ L. Nokomis: a handful
of n. shovelers, ruddy ducks, buffleheads, pied-billed grebes.
Other recent migrant arrivals in the area: winter wrens and fox
sparrows in numbers.
