Ivory Gull??? WTF

From Ontbirds:

Hi all
"First winter Ivory Gull feeding on a dead duck. Seen from the east end of Baskin Drive, Madawaska head pond of the Madawaska River.
Take 417 exit at White Lake junction (look for Tim Hortons)"
- Michael Runtz

In other news, I will be going to the Toronto airport to pick up Laura this evening! Getting excited :) I probably won't be able to chase this bird until Thursday, however. That is, if it hangs around.
About half of Ontario's Ivory Gulls are one day wonders. The other half generally hang around for 3 days to a week. The longest staying Ivory Gull was one on Amherst Island that hung around for 14 days (January 3 to January 17, 2001).
