12/8 – Thayer’s Gull, Windsor

Thayer's Gull alongside a Herring Gull

Last Thursday, Jim Orrico and I headed up to the Windsor-Bloomfield Landfill in search of the previously reported 1st cycle Thayer’s Gull found by Nick Bonomo. Amazingly, the Thayer’s was the first gull I saw upon exiting the car. The bird provided great looks as it wandered around our vicinity before flying onto a dirt pile and then into the areas where fresh trash was being dumped. An awesome bird and for once a pretty straightforward Thayer’s. See Nick’s blog for more photos and notes on this bird.
