This first cycle Lesser Black-backed
Gull was on the beach behind Ashbridges Bay Water Treatment Plant in
Toronto on 20 December 2015. We were doing the Toronto Christmas
Bird Count: John Carley, Carl Hills, Karen McDonald, Janice
Melendez, Ian Maione, Henrique Pacheco, Justin Peter. It is considered to be the
"best" bird of the 2015 Toronto count because there are
only three previous records of Lesser Black-backed Gull for the count.
