Just curious about the Thayer's Gull you listed for Massachusetts? I may have overlooked this but I don't know of any seen in the state recently. Where was it and how did you find out about it. I was in the UK over Christmas so may have overlooked it.

Another additional note, a WESTERN GREBE was found this morning at Piermont
Pier in Rockland County NY. This is located on Ferry Road in the town of
Piermont on the Hudson River and has housed many rarities in years past
(Ivory Gull etc). Unfortunately it hasn't been reported since 11 AM today.
