I just spoke with Jim Lind and he said that the immature Ivory Gull  
got up from the ice where it had been sitting, circled high overhead,  
and flew west at 1:40 PM. Areas to consider looking for the bird  
include the harbor ice off the Port Terminal, the mouth of Miller  
Creek near the WLSSD treatment plant off 27th Ave West, and the harbor  
ice off the Park Point Recreation Area where several ice fisherman  
have gathered. Of course, it's possible that the bird will return to  
Canal Park also.
When it was initially spotted at 11:24 AM today, it was on the ice  
east of the Canal Park tourist area (near the Maritime Museum).  
Between 11:37 and 11:42 AM, it flew around before landing on another  
ice floe. For about the last hour and a half, it has been best seen  
from the "corner of the lake" near the Canal Park Lodge, where  
Mallards and other waterfowl congregate. Several birders will be  
attempting to refind the bird this afternoon, and if I receive any  
more updates I will repost. I will also keep watching from my office  
window as time permits.
