Two extremely rare gulls have been reported yesterday, Nov. 10: an adult
IVORY GULL near Abbotsford, BC, and a ROSS'S GULL at Tachick Lake near
Vanderhoof. The IVORY GULL was photographed. Several birders have looked for
the Ivory Gull this morning, but have been unable to relocate it so far.

I am including the details from last night's Vancouver RBA, thanks to Mark
Wynja. I will be forwarding the entire RBA message to the usual places later
today, but don't have time right now.

This message may be forwarded to any other E-mail groups if you wish.


An IVORY GULL was found on the Matsqui Flats just east of the Hwy 11
(Abbotsford-Mission Hwy) in a large flock of gulls and crows on a
farm field. (to get there, take Hwy 1 east, head north on Hwy 11,
turn left on Harris Rd., right on Riverside, follow Riverside under
Hwy 11 and turn right on to Page Rd. The flock was on the south side
of Page about 200 metres east of the intersection with Sim Rd.

Out of town, an adult ROSS'S GULL was found on Tachick Lake, southwest
of Vanderhoof. The gull was viewed from the Tachick Lake Resort (to
get there, follow signs to the Kenney Dam via Kenney Dam Rd. Shortly
after the road turns to gravel, watch for the sign to Tachick Lake
Resort which is on Tachick Lake Rd).
