Black-tailed Gull in Long Beach now??!

Late this morning, Robert Hamilton discovered a Black-tailed Gull at Alamitos Bay near Long Beach, CA. The bird is resident in East Asia, including China, Taiwan, Japan and Korea. It is a rare vagrant to Alaska and northeastern North America and an even more uncommon visitor to California. This marks only the second or third record in the state of California.
