Unfortunately, not a single one of those really neat birds showed up for us. We did manage not see some other good birds including 5 sandpipers including Western and Purple, all three scoter species and several half-hardies such as Gray Catbird, Brown Thrasher, Hermit Thrush and Eastern Towhee.
On the way back to Pennsylvania we stopped at Tullytown, right across the Delaware River from a huge landfill in New Jersey that attracts thousands upon thousands of gulls. You can see what lifer I saw here last year in a previous post.
Many great gull species have been seen here including California, Thayer’s, Iceland, Glaucous, Black-headed, and most recently, a Slaty-backed Gull. We managed to locate a huge first-cycle Glaucous Gull immediately upon arriving and I managed only one photo that was unobstructed by other gulls.
