Great Bird When I'm Away

The meeting that I am attending is a mix of both birders and hunters. Yesterday, as we were reconvening after lunch, I did a quick check of email to discover that an ivory gull was reported in Duluth, MN. I announced that I had to fly home immediately, the guy running the workshop who is also a birder said, "Not unless I can come too!" Most of the birders in the room wanted to go.

This morning when I woke up, Sparky Stensaas had put up a photo of the gull on his site.

Oh well, I have ibises to keep me warm.
