The theme this weekend was Thayer's. Thayer's, Thayer's and more Thayer's. I noted at least 12 individuals between North Point Marina, Lake County Fairgrounds and nearby Independence Grove on Saturday, 30 November 2013. Of note was my first 2nd cycle and first 3rd cycle of the season. Keep in mind that I don't often knowingly see 3rd cycle Thayer's so this was indeed a treat.
First cycle Thayer's Gull. Lake County Fairgrounds. Lake County, IL.
Second Cycle Thayer's Gull. Lake County Fairgrounds. Lake County, IL.
Third Cycle Thayer's Gull. Independence Grove. Lake County, IL.
