I got an early start on Sunday morning and reached Lake Cochise in Willcox by 6 a.m. I was hoping to find the Snowy Plover that had been there for a couple weeks. No luck. There were a few California and Ring-billed Gulls, rare this time of year and difficult to tell apart in similar plumage.
I did finally manage to get a mediocre photo of a Scaled Quail.
