Black-legged Kittiwake

We drove out to South Padre Island today to see if we could find the Black-legged Kittiwake that has been reported.

We walked up and down the jetty.

Mark took lots of pictures.

We saw a beautiful sunrise, but no Kittiwake.

As we were getting ready to leave, a very nice gentleman asked if we had seen the Kittiwake. He showed us were it was, which happened to be pretty close to our car but in the other direction from where we were. We got great looks at this beautiful bird.

This small gull is seldom seen anywhere along the Gulf Coast.
