Havasu Jaeger
All,
This morning (5 Sep) I spent some time birding around Lake Havasu. I started at the north end of the lake with 2 Mexican Ducks and 4 Sabine's Gulls (likely best viewed from Mesquite Bay area). I also spotted a very distant dark speck that seemed jaeger like so I drove to Pittsburgh Pt where I was able to quickly refind and confirm that a JAEGER was sitting on the water. Unfortunately in the hour plus of watching it, the bird never flew. It was over a mile away so has to be left as a spuh for now but is most likely either a Long-tailed or a Parasitic. I also had a single Sabine's Gull here. Spending an hour was about my limit with the bird so I headed over to Rotary Park to look at closer birds. There of interest was a SANDERLING on the beach, an early Gray Flycatcher, and a locally rare Gila Woodpecker. 

The M lakes strike me as being due for a jaeger, hopefully, one that is less than a mile away...
Good birding

No jaeger today but 4-5 SABINE's Gulls were off Mesquite Bay.
