Iceland Gulls at Fox Point State Park

While searching for a previously reported Glaucous Gull at Fox Point State Park this evening, we found two Iceland Gulls at the north end of the park. The two birds were first observed by Mason Sieges in flight as they flew upriver to the gull roost that Kyle Horton and I were sifting through. There were about 1500 Ring-billed and 1000 Herring Gulls with 6 Lesser and 10 Great Black-backed gulls mixed in.
