IVORY GULL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

An Ivory Gull is being seen right now (11:40 a.m.) in Cape May Harbor. It is being reported as a non-adult-plumaged bird. First reported by Jim Dowdell, who had a long-distance view from the Coast Guard Base, it was later relocated and photographed by Tom Johnson.

Undoubtedly many birders will descend to find this bird - please be sure to obey all local rules regarding parking and remain courteous to nonbirders and birders alike.

I believe this is the 8th state record for this species.
