Subject:      Sabine's Gull photos + yard birding
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1

Just as I got all excited about having a wonderful day in the yard I came back in and read my emails and saw that there was a Sabine's Gull less than an hour away! I quickly got everything together and called a friend and rushed down there. I saw the Sabine's Gull immediately sitting out in the flooded field. We spent over an hour observing it along with Joshua Spence, Jim Flynn, and Zack Barrow (as well as both Zack's mother and my mother). It did lift off and fly around for a bit (for no apparent reason) giving us awesome looks at its amazing wing pattern! Photos of the bird can be seen here: <>Before the adrenaline rush of the Sabine's Gull I got to bird around the house for a few hours. We even got a bit of sunshine! Quite a contrast to the rain/flooding we've been having over the past week or two. I did have a few notable birds, the latest yard record ever of both Cerulean Warbler and Northern Parula. Total I had 10 warbler species. The complete list is below:
