Rarity-chasing birders will be heading to the shores of Lake Champlain near Charlotte, Vermont this weekend hoping to catch a glimpse of a rare Asian gull: the black-tailed gull (Larus crassirostris). Here is CNN's item on the sighting.
This is a very cool bird. Unfortunately I will not be join the stampede to Vermont. I'll be trick-or-treating with Phoebe and Liam this weekend. Phoebe is dressing as a Red Hat lady.
If you go, please send me a photo if you see the bird! Oh, and say hello to Ben & Jerry.
