Ivory Gull Update and Pictures

[Kevin Karlson's life Ivory Gull - and probably a lifer for many others. Photo by Kevin Karlson, click to enlarge all photos.]

Hard to top this one. The juvenile Ivory Gull was last seen, according to Doug Gochfeld, still in the vicinity of Cape May Harbor near the cannery at the Ocean Drive Toll Bridge just after 4:30 p.m. According to Vince Elia and others, it moved around constantly in the Harbor. Those looking tomorrow should look near the Lobster House, from across the harbor near the Nature Center of Cape May, from Ocean Drive vantages - and especially, I suspect, for throngs of excited birders! Please respect all private property, no parking signs, and be courteous to non-birders.
