 A Black-headed Gull was on the Lake Erie beach yesterday at Maumee Bay State Park. It was on the edge of a large flock of Ring-billed Gulls, Common Terns and a few Bonaparte's Gulls. 

Sorry for the late post. When I saw the bird, I thought the bill looked red so took a few photos thinking it might be Black-headed but then it flew and I pretty much forgot about it because I was busy with some good shorebirds. Finally looked at the photos this afternoon.

That large flock was still there today, Thursday, but I did not look for the bird.

Black-headed Gull was relocated today, Saturday, on the beach, east end, at 10:30 AM. Later seen out in the lake.

The B-H Gull was seen several times the morning of Sun 24 Sep.  Several birders had to sort through enormous flocks of gulls and terns, moving about between the 'inland pond' beach and various places on the main beach.  By the way, I've not seen plumage mentioned (?) - my look was partly obstructed, but it looked like a winter/basic adult.
 
(thanks, Rick! - my Ohio list now at 304)
 
Stops elsewhere in the park, and at/near Cullen Park, produced almost nothing for songbird migration, just FYI.
