Please tell me I was wrong to ID this as a Bonaparte's Gull - SW MI 2-6 in Help Me Identify a North American Bird Posted February 7 1 minute ago, Birding Boy said: WHOAH. NICE BIRD. Undoubtedly BLKI! Where at? Crazy find! Kalamazoo River, west of Battle Creek between 20th Street and Helmer. There is pull off, off Jackson St and you can walk a trail next to the river. At least a snow covered trail, but you can walk it.
