Ken Burrell and I teamed up for some sweeet birding... Some highlights -
Stopped by to see this beast - found by Naughty Nathan Miller a few days ago... Pretty crazy bird! We also scored this Black-legged Kittiwake in a big flock of BOGU not far from shore -

We then rocked the area above the falls - scoring:
1 dark-mantled hybrid (I'm guessing Herring X Lesser Black-backed) -
10+ Lesser Black-backs
4 Iceland Gulls
3 Glaucous Gulls
Below the falls was pretty slow. Did have a Common Loon and a spankin adult Little Gull
We then hit up Adam Beck - which was fairly slow overall, but had good birds..
1 juv Thayer's Gull (beauty of a bird, my first of the fall)
6+ Iceland Gulls
1 Glaucous Gull
We then did a quick stop at Queenston Heights to look for vultures, of which we saw none. So we went home! Not a bad day!
