John Luther had an adult Heerman's Gull at Stovepipe Wells 13 Apr and presumably the same bird at Furnace Creek sewage ponds today. This is the 3rd record for the county and the first for Death Valley National Park. He also had an adult Broad-winged Hawk yesterday at Furnace Creek Ranch which is the earliest spring arrival for this casual (not seen every year) species.
