I spent this evening at Purgatory Creek Wetlands in Edin Prairie with no
success in finding the Sabine's Gull reported by Connie Brunell on Friday.
There were about 125 Ring-billed Gulls, 16 Caspian Terns and 1 Franklin's
Gull present.  Shorebirds were limited to 1 Baird's Sandpiper, 2 peeps and
numerous Killdeer.  It was an enjoyable evening spent with another birder
named Josh, one woman who chastised me for looking at Gulls rather than the
Bald Eagle eating a fish in front of us and numerous people who thought I
was there looking for American White Pelicans.
