My apologies for the late report. Friday evening between 5:45 and 6:00pm I  
saw an adult Lesser Black-backed Gull on Black Dog Lake in Burnsville, Dakota  
County. West end, near the concrete pipe and castings. This may be the same 
bird  reported by others at Lake Calhoun in Hennepin County recently (touche,  
Paul!). This is a different bird than the one I saw previously at this  
location on 9/5 (I never saw that bird again, despite much looking). This bird  had a 
clean white head (no head streaking or spot in front of the eye); a golden  
yellow colored bill; and only a red gonydeal spot. It also had a more defined  
whitish edge to the secondaries. Plus other typical adult plumage  
At least 4 Franklin's Gulls were also present (possibly others), and a  
couple Herring Gulls. 
Also, reporting even later, was a Bonaparte's Gull on 9/11 (adult in basic
