One prays this is not due to some sewage or other effluent spill. Any known reason for the concentration?

I was witness to this a short while ago from Stamford Ave - an incredible sight! Two hours ago there were in excess of 1000 gulls in a relatively concentrated area, a mix of Ring-billed, Herring and Greater Black-backed; also a few Common Goldeneye, Scaup, American Wigeon, Red-breasted Mergansers and many Brant. I only had compact bins in my possession at the time. Surely there is something other than the 3 gulls mentioned.

A growing group easily totaling 5,000 birds with a steady stream of gulls adding to the group. Unfortunately everything is too far for identification of species.
