Arctic Loon and Gyrfalcon in California?

Spent the past couple weekends chasing some decent rarities in California. An Arctic Loon near San Simeon State Beach, which is the 2nd Arctic Loon I’ve seen in California – but I was able to get some absolutely stunning photos of him!

Less than a week later, a Gyrfalcon showed up in Riverside County. Marking one of the farthest south records ever for the species. The last Gyrfalcon I saw was in Alaska and the last one in the Lower 48 was in Idaho!

Ivory Gull UPDATE: Monday, Nov 8 (NOT SEEN)

As of 09:30 this morning, the Ivory Gull still hasn’t been relocated. It has been almost 24 hours since it was last seen flying north after feeding at the Pinniped carcass in Grover Beach. Wes Fritz and others have been scouring the beach as far north as Morro Bay with no success. I will be continuing to update the Ivory Gull RBA page at http://kiwifoto.com/rba/ivgu.html as well as posting updates on Twitter and my blog.
