My friend Luke DeCicco and I went birding last night at the marshes below the Clitheroe Center in Anchorage. I got curious when Luke asked in a rather excited manner to see my scope. Lo and behold, he had just found an Ivory Gull. I believe this is the third Anchorage record. It was not afraid of us. Of course, this would happen when I forget my camera. Luckily, my iPhone-through-the-scope trick worked out alright.
