There were two Iceland Gulls (presumed to be the same ones) continuing near Mitchell Farm. I did not pick out the Mew, but I wouldn't assume that it isn't there, as I did not spend much time. The good news is that there is now ice along the river/lake shore and the gulls are roosting close to River Road, allowing for better observation/photographic opportunities. There was one odd pale gull in the mix that I have to study photos of before commenting much on. May just be a faded immature Herring Gull. More later if worth mentioning further.
At least one Pine Siskin and one Purple Finch (both heard) at the Bent of the River.
