Boston - 20.8.13

6 months to the day since we had booked our American/Canadian adventure we had finally arrived in after a 7 hour plane journey. Unfortunately my first experience of life over the pond was to have to queue up for 2 hours to get through immigration as out of the 40 booths just 10 were open. Due to this wait the rest of the day was limited to getting to the hotel and getting something to eat! Though the view from the hotel room mainly consisted of road and car park I still managed to get 2 lifers. Lots of AMERICAN HERRING GULLS of all ages were milling around and what I didn't know was the next door was the national convention centre which doubled up as a pretty big gull roost! GBB and Ring-Billed Gulls were in number too. The 2nd lifer was an unexpected one given the surroundings. A NORTHERN MOCKINGBIRD flew up to land on part of the hotel roof but was too far for a photo.
