There were not too many gulls around today but a few were circling 
around the western outflow of Black Dog Lake in Burnsville (~1/4 mile 
east of 35W on Black Dog Road).  A Glaucous Gull was present when I 
arrived and was observed by several people.  A Thayer's Gull showed up 
a little later.

There also was an interesting hawk along the edge of the Burnsville 
Landfill (end of Washburn Ave, north of Hwy 13).  I think it is a dark 
morph "Western" type Red-tailed Hawk but I'd be interested to hear what 
others think.
