      During January there has been an adult Lesser Black-backed Gull
      roaming the Sanibel beach. It was seen again this morning at
      milepost 3.5. This is just slightly east of the Casa Ybel resort.

      The bird is an adult in winter plumage. The yellow iris and red gape
      were clearly visible in terrific morning light.

      In the same spot were 4 of the 5 plovers (Wilson missing). At one
      point the Piping, Snowy, and Semipalm were all in one binocular view.

      What a life!
