Gulls over Broadmeade

I got out in my yard for about 30 minutes this morning. Things were slow until just before I decided to leave for work. I looked west and saw a flock of about 30 Franklin's Gulls heading north. These black-headed gulls winter on the west coast of South America and summer in Canada. So the only time we get to see them in Texas is during spring and fall migration. Other birds included a very bright Orange-crowned Warbler, a very drab Ruby-crowned Kinglet, and several singing Nashville Warblers that I never got my eyes on.
