I made a run down to South Shore Yacht Club in Milwaukee late morning. I had just saw the report by Jennifer A of the Kumlien’s Iceland Gull, 2nd cycle. This bird has been around the area but I had missed previous tries. I was down there yesterday and it was still froze up and almost bird less. Today it was open water south of the club and very birdie. Along with the Kumlien’s Iceland were two Great Black-backed Gulls, one adult and one 1st winter and 2 Glaucous Gulls. Thanks to Jennifer for the report. Images were taken on February 8, 2015.
