    Comments: Continuing birds. Tall, slim shorebirds with long, thin necks and small heads. They had very long thin bills with upturned tips and were using them to sweep the water from side to side. They had all white plumage with black-and-white wings.

  18. Larus sp.

    Number observed: 1

    Comments: This large immature gull (larger than the California Gulls) with grayish plumage was most likely a Herring Gull. I only had it in my scope for a few seconds and couldn't make out any field marks before the gull flock was spooked by something. Nearly all the gulls, including this one, flew off to the northeast.
