Feb. 20 -21, 2010
Tunica, Co. MS
I spent most of Saturday and Sunday overseeing Air Traffic Control at 4  
roost sites in the fields around the Tunica Co. Landfill. The gull traffic  
was quite heavy with 6 species of gulls seen. Ring-billed, Bonaparte's and all 
4  age groups of Herring Gulls were present along with both immature and  
adult Thayer's and California Gulls plus a 2nd year Lesser Black-backed  
Gull. Again distance and on Saturday the clouds made for poor photos plus the  
birds would come in and sit down in the middle of the thousands of Ring-bills 
 making for even fewer and more difficult opportunities. If interested here 
are a  few shots:
Good Birding  !!!
