The Black-tailed Gull continues at Ashtabula, a record solid month’s stay and counting. The gull frequents the cement bridge (channel to the north and river marina to the south) and Lake Shore Park. From Lake Shore, one can view the tops of several industrial buildings where the bird can be found resting, as well as the harbor, beach and jetties. Some days views are distant and other days, the gull has been seen and photographed point blank from 100 to 400 yards away. Searches should allow for several hours of searching. This bird is not a quick one-stop shot. The best spots for viewing are still points C and B, which can be found on the map provided on the “Black-tailed Gull page” found above on the menu. Today the gull was observed by Ted Gilliland, Isaac Kerns, and Jay Lehman. Ted found the gull around 10 am, and then it was relocated later in the afternoon.
