Eagle Creek Park-Franklin's Gull

This morning Rob and I headed out to Eagle Creek Park to see what migrants had dropped in.  The radar had been lit up all night with migrating birds and we quickly found out the bulk of the migrants were thrushes.  

After about 5 minutes of scanning the flats, the biggest highlight of the day arrived, three Franklin's Gulls.  There were also a few shorebird species, including a Semipalmated Plover. 

Can you pick out the three Franklin's Gulls?

Other highlights included a very cooperative Olive-sided Flycatcher, two Golden-winged Warblers, and two friendly Sedge Wrens.
