Around 3:30 this afternoon, I had the Gyrfalcon fly by the north side of the landfill (now that they have us viewing from the top). When I left around 3:45, the Gyrfalcon was perched on a pipe (I think for methane capture?) on the north side of the landfill. Unfortunately, I couldn't see this from the landfill and had to view from a pullout on Taft Hill Road just northeast of the landfill. I also saw the adult Glaucous-winged Gull within a minute of scoping the gulls at the landfill, but unfortunately it flew while I was getting my camera out of the trunk. This species is turning into a photo nemesis for me in Colorado.
