Erika and I were also in Prescott this morning.  We also saw 2 Thayer's
Gulls, 1 adult and 1 first cycle.  We did not see the Iceland or the
Ring-billed Gulls.  We photographed a Thayer's Gull and a Herring Gull near
Lock 2 In Hastings.  I will post these in my blog in a few days.  We also
unsuccessfully searched for the Barrow's Goldeneye.  We found a first year
winter male Common Goldeneye, which I will also post on the blog shortly.  I
will let you know when these postings are made.
