At 11:01 am this morning, I spotted an adult Slaty-backed Gull in flight over 
the Superior Landfill, Douglas Co., WI, and then around 11:40 am this bird was 
found at Canal Park in Duluth by Peder Svingen. When I joined Peder at Canal 
Park around 1:45 pm, the bird was incredibly tame and we got great photos, one 
of which is posted to recently seen. This could well be the same third-cycle 
bird seen last fall 28 October-13 December 2009 at this same location, now in 
adult plumage.
