Sorry for the late report .Birded too long and then went to a Connecticut  
Forest and Parks dinner.
At about 12:30 this afternoon I had a adult Sabine's Gull at the end of the  
Morain trail.It was sitting out on the rocks with 10 Bonaparte's Gulls.The  
Common Eider was also present on the rocks.The Sabine's was about 50 feet from  
me preening. The yellow tip was very easy to see.It also had a partial hood  
coming down the back of the head.
