A twitch and a miss

On Saturday, I went with a group of birding friends to twitch the Ross's Gull that was hanging out at Niagara Falls. We left at 2AM in the morning in order to be there at first light. We spent the whole morning looking at the falls, but no bird. We ended up birding the Niagara River down to Fort Niagara and missed the bird, and returned home . Apparently it ended its run on Friday.

The day wasn't a complete bust for me, as I finally saw a Little Gull. This gull species has been eluding me for the last couple of years, so it feels good to put the checkmark on my ABA list.
