We reviewed the pictures of the reported Bonaparte's Gull below and have revised our report to a BLACK-HEADED GULL. When reviewing the pictures later, field marks which could not be seen with a scope were noted revealing the identity. The bird was seen in the 1st impoundment - north side - from a distance and was last seen flying to the Sound.  I will forward pictures later for those that are interested.
