Hello Tweeters!

Out on a walk in one of the small parks not far from my house in Lake
Forest Park this morning (May 13) I spotted flying high overhead and
circling six or seven gull-shaped birds with underwing markings I did not
immediately recognize.

The wing tips were so black contrasting with white of the wings that I
thought they might have been pelicans for a split second. Additionally, the
underside of the trailing edges of the wings where they met the birds'
waists were quite black. The tips of the white tail feathers were also
black. Zooming in on one of the mediocre photos I managed to tale also
revealed gull-like heads.

I know I can't attach photos to Tweeters messages, but if anyone thinks
they might know what these might be I can definitely send the long photos.

Thanks, and keep watching the skies!
