Hi tweeters,

Yesterday (10/10/17) at 2:45pm I saw the Dash Point Franklin's Gull at the
creek outlet at Dash Point State Park in King County. If you go to the pier
and don't see it flying around scope the creek mouth to the east. Or drive
over for closer looks.

At the Cedar Rive mouth in Renton between 4:30-5pm there was a hybrid
Glaucous x Glaucous-winged Gull. It was a very pale and washed out first
year bird with a pale eye and a pink bill with smudging extending up from
the black tip. Thanks to Ryan Merril for helping me sort out that this
points to it being a hybrid and not just a messy looking Glaucous.

Good birding,

Sam Terry
