Greetings from Tucson, AZ:
I was lucky enough to arrive in Tucson during a week that not only saw one, but two great birds. The first being a bird that is seen regularly on the west coast but was my first for Arizona. A post about the second bird will be coming soon. While working on Tuesday the 17th a Heerman's Gull was reported from the opposite side of Tucson. If you are familiar with Tucson, you will understand that a cross-city trip can take longer than an hour. Luckily, I was able to make it across town in less time and quickly find the gull. I hadn't seen this species in a few years so it was great to see!
