On Saturday, we set off early on the BSBO Bird Bus to head towards Cleveland where we would get on the boat we took into Lake Erie. Two days prior, a female King Eider had been found not too far from the harbor, so we decided to head in that direction. Once we got out of the harbor, we also started chumming for gulls with bread and popcorn. It immediately attracted a huge following of Ring-billed Gulls!

I got to hang out with a bunch of the awesome staff from BSBO that afternoon, and for dinner we went to one of my favorite restaurants in the Magee Marsh area, The Oregon Inn!
If you think this trip sounds like fun, be sure to join us for one or both of our next trips on November 24 and December 8. You can register for the trips here.
Hope to see you on one of the trips!
