Just wanted to ask, Don, as perhaps I've missed a posting (or else this was just an easy mistake), but is the Laughing Gull you mention in your post, below, actually the same as the Franklin's Gull that has been seen in the Dana Point area (off and on, or possibly more than one bird) in recent weeks? Probably others may have asked the same, off-line.

Went to look for the Laughing Gull and Common Tern at San Juan Creek but found neither, but did get a photo of a interesting Caspian Tern - see Flickr : http://flic.kr/p/ejDKyp
