Just a quick note that a/the adult Laughing Gull was present this  
afternoon from 4:30 p.m. to at least 6:30 amongst the crowd  of "black and white" 
birds hunkering down at Hillman Marsh.  It  flushed a few times, but always 
came back and favored the far right of the  main group, sitting with the imm. 
Ring-bills in the drier weeds.  One of  the two adult Little Gulls were also 
present, along with 2+ Black Terns.   Shorebirds were highlighted by 9 
crisp Long-billed Dowitchers and about a dozen  each Dunlin and Black-bellied 
Plovers.  A near adult Bald Eagle  made a pass over the marsh around 4:20.
