A Heerman's Gull in Arizona

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!
